Roma fans demand resignations

Around 200 ultras staged a protest at the Roma training ground today, demanding the immediate resignation of the directors.

The anger is still in full flow after the Giallorossi lost the Coppa Italia Final to Lazio and failed to qualify for Europe again.

This morning 200 fans stood outside the Trigoria training ground despite heavy rain, waving flags and banners while hurling abuse at the club.

Among the chants were ‘We want a Romanista’ and ‘Get the Laziali out of Roma,’ as they demanded the resignation of directors Franco Baldini, Walter Sabatini and Mauro Baldissoni.

‘For two years you’ve taken us for a ride with disappointment and incompetent directors. Now resignations!’ read a banner, while another stated: ‘Give us back our Roma.’

A banner referring to the Coppa Italia defeat read: ‘26-05-13: 86 years of history defaced.’

There were also insulting chants aimed at players Pablo Daniel Osvaldo and Daniele De Rossi.
