Roma fans protest club sales

Roma fans are protesting the club’s transfer strategy after a last-gasp 2-1 defeat to Milan. “Your only trophies are profits.”

The Giallorossi had a shaky start to the campaign, scraping a 1-0 win at Torino, fighting back from 3-1 down at home to draw 3-3 with Atalanta and last night’s loss at San Siro.

Overnight, a banner appeared in front of the Trigoria training ground with a message for the club.

“So much for a Scudetto, so much for the Champions League. Your trophies are just profits and sales.”

The departure of Kevin Strootman to Olympique Marseille in the final days of the Ligue 1 transfer window, when the Serie A market was already shut and no replacement could be brought in, infuriated the supporters.

They were already concerned after Radja Nainggolan was sold to Inter, with Alisson Becker following Mohamed Salah to Liverpool.
