Fans pressure Roma into logo change?

Roma could change their club symbol again after thousands of complaints about the recent revamp.

The Giallorossi introduced a new logo with a more stylised wolf and placed ‘Roma 1927’ along the bottom instead of the traditional ‘ASR.’

Fans were furious and a petition against the change garnered thousands of signatures.

According to La Repubblica newspaper, President James Pallotta has been stunned by the reaction and is considering another adjustment by hiring Piero Gratton, the man who designed the original logo 30 years ago.

It would follow in the footsteps of Everton, who this week apologised to supporters after introducing a new logo.

Meanwhile, Roma have had to remove a scarf from their merchandising store, as it commemorated the Coppa Italia Final defeat to Lazio.

The scarf read: ‘26-5-2013, I was there.’
