'I say sorry for what I say' - FFA Cup victory speech takes foul-mouthed turn video

Fairfax Media

There were two words in Melbourne City Captain Bruno Fornaroli's FFA Cup final speech that got everyone talking.

It was big night for Melbourne City captain Bruno Fornaroli on Wednesday night.

The star Uruguayan forward led his club to its first piece of men's silverware in a 1-0 FFA Cup final win over Sydney FC, and claimed the Mark Viduka medal for man of the match. But his acceptance speech on the podium was something else.

A native Spanish speaker, Fornaroli's English has improved since joining City, but could still be fairly described as 'broken'.

In a thick accent he thanked sponsors and the fans, before proceeding to say two English words it seems he knows very well.

Bruno Fornaroli had plenty to shout about after Melbourne City won the FFA Cup.

As he backed away from the microphone, a very excited Fornaroli appeared to exclaim audibly, "and f... off!"

After initial disbelief, the social media consensus was that we had heard correctly. The competition's official Twitter account probably said it best.

"You win, you run a lot...It's not my fault!," he said.

"This moment I'm very tired ... but I say sorry for what I say."

On a more serious note, Fornaroli also said the win was the best moment of his career.

"I think this one's top, because now I have a big responsibility for this club.

"I feel good inside the pitch and outside."

It wasn't the only unusual moment on the night. During the second half, play was stopped as Sydney goalkeeper Danny Vukovic tended to a winged seagull, carrying it to the sidelines, where it rested before flying away.
