Chelsea loanee Ethan Ampadu sets incredible unwanted Serie A record during Spezia's clash at Lazio | The Sun

10/02/2022

CHELSEA ace Ethan Ampadu broke the history books for the wrong reason while out on loan at Spezia.

The Welshman set a new all-time Serie A record during his side's 4-0 defeat to Lazio.

He gave away the fastest penalty in the league's history bringing down Ciro Immobile after just 39 seconds.

Ampadu dived in to bring down the Italian striker – but at least saw Immobile miss his spot kick.

The on-loan Blue was booked for the foul and then subbed off after 66 minutes.

The penalty broke the record for earliest ever given – surpassing the 42 seconds it took for Napoli hero Marek Hamsik to be fouled by AC Milan's Mattia De Sciglio in 2015.

Immobile's day improved despite the missed penalty as Lazio cruised to victory rising to third in the league table – helped by an inspired Sergej Milinkovic-Savic performance as he netted twice.

Ampadu, 22, is on loan at Spezia, who narrowly avoided relegation last season.

He also spent the previous campaign with Venezia as they finished bottom of Serie A in 2021/22.

Ampadu has had a difficult time in Italy having played 33 times for the two clubs picking up 13 yellow cards and two reds in that period.
