Ricky Kaka and Christian Abbiati met with 300 angry Milan fans who blocked the San Siro exits after a draw with Genoa.
The 1-1 result against a team that played with 10 men for an hour sparked a furious protest, as the ultras had already shown some insulting banners during the game.
The situation deteriorated after the final whistle, as ultras and police blocked off the exits to the stadium, keeping the players and therefore also the visiting Genoa fans inside.
Among the chants from angry supporters they called out ‘Shame on you,’ ‘We’re waiting for you with sticks’ and ‘These brats don’t know what sacrifice is. Their bank accounts are full while people like us work for them.’
After Mario Balotelli reportedly tried to walk out to the gate to meet with ultras and was stopped by police, Kaka and Abbiati were allowed out for a face-to-face discussion.
They promised to put in more effort and to curb the attitude of some players who fans accused of staying out late at night.
Following this meeting, the ultras dissipated and allowed the team buses to leave the stadium after midnight.
