Manu Ginóbili mocked Facundo Campazzo with a World Cup video and almost suffered a tremendous consequence

Like thousands of fans across the planet, Emanuel Ginobili lives with great fervor the start of the World Cup. Attentive to what was happening in the opening game, the former basketball player compared a Qatari player with Facundo Campazzo and uploaded a video to his social networks to prove it. It was a mockery that almost cost him the suspension of his account.

The incident occurred in the run-up to the match that the hosts played against Gustavo Alfaro’s Ecuador at the Al Bayt stadium. The bahiense shared a video in which one of the players from the local cast was seen, which showed a great physical resemblance to his former teammate. “Facu Campazzo’s Qatari first cousin,” he wrote.

“Yes, we will have eaten barbecue with our cousin. Great guy, “replied the Cordovan point guard, who did not shrink from Manu’s comparison.

What Ginóbili did not expect is that this joke would almost cost him his Twitter account, in which he has almost 5 million followers. A copyright infringement earned him an account suspension warning. “And this?” He asked with complete alarm upon receiving notice that he did not have the rights from FIFA to reproduce that video on his profile.
