Samp ultras block team bus

Sampdoria are in crisis after seven consecutive defeats and ultras staged a protest as the team bus returned to Genoa.

The Blucerchiati were in action this afternoon in a 2-0 loss in Palermo and were greeted back this evening by an angry mob.

Coach Ciro Ferrara has refused to resign and the club reiterated its faith in him despite the record run of setbacks.

Around 50 ultras were at the airport to ‘greet’ the squad, so they were rushed on to a bus for safety reasons.

However, the fans then blocked off the road to stop the bus from moving, performing a ‘sit in’ and demanding negotiations with the players or technical staff.

Nobody wanted to speak with the ultras, so after a few minutes police intervened to clear the road.
