    Melbourne City skipper Bruno Fornaroli believes his rude sign off after Melbourne City’s breakthrough FFA Cup was probably a case of lost in translation.

    The Uruguayan, whose native language is Spanish, said: ‘And f..k off!’ as he threw prepared cue cards into the air at the end of a faltering victory speech at AAMI Park on Wednesday night.

    The City skipper explained his rude slip of the tongue the morning after his side’s historic 1-0 win over Sydney FC.

    ‘I went to say ‘vamos’, nothing more. When you win the first cup for the club it was amazing so it was a great moment and I went to say ‘vamos’,’ Fornaroli told reporters.

    Vamos is a Spanish word than can mean ‘Let’s go!’.

    ‘But I said something different I think,’ he continued.

        Having been in Australia for less than two years, Fornaroli’s English is best described as ‘broken’.

        ‘If someone feels bad for (me saying) this then I’m sorry but it was not what I wanted to say.

        ‘In this moment it was difficult to speak because I still have the game inside and I’m crazy for the moment.’

        City won the first silverware in the club’s history after superstar striker Tim Cahill found the net with a deft header in the 53rd minute.

        Fornaroli is hopeful the win can help spur his side onto a maiden A-League title.

        ‘This is the first step … we don’t have time to celebrate too much,’ he said.

        ‘I think this is the best (of my career) because it’s the first cup for the club.

        ‘I think this group goes into history now. It’s amazing not only for me but for the whole club.’
