Juve to rescind 'racist' Napoli ban

Juventus are set to rescind their ‘racist’ ban on tickets for the Napoli game to anyone born in Naples, reducing it to the more traditional residents only.

The Bianconeri caused huge controversy when they announced restrictions for the upcoming Serie A match at the Allianz Juventus Stadium on August 31.

Lazio ultras leader shot dead

Lazio are in shock after ultras leader Fabrizio Piscitelli, known as Diabolik, was killed in an apparent ambush attack in Rome.

The incident occurred on the Via Tuscolana, in the Parco degli Acquedotti, and it’s reported he was shot in the head.

He was no stranger to police and not just because of his position in the ultras movement, as he had also been involved in a drugs bust.

It comes just a couple of months after the headquarters of the Lazio ultras group Irriducibili was struck by a small explosive device.

Ranieri: 'Not real racism in stadiums'

Roma Coach Claudio Ranieri claims racist abuse in Italian stadiums “is not real racism, or at least it’s only a very small part of it.”

The debate continues in Italy over how to deal with racist jeers from fans, but former Chelsea and Leicester City manager Ranieri does not see it as a big problem.

“The racism you hear in stadiums is just something very silly to mock, in a very, very stupid way, a lad whose skin colour is not as light,” Ranieri told La Gazzetta dello Sport in a filmed interview.

Fiorentina ultras suspend protest

Fiorentina fans announced the suspension of protests, in a bid to get behind the team in their relegation clash with Genoa.

La Viola hosts the Grifone on Sunday for their final day of the season showdown, knowing that a defeat could see them drop down to Serie B next season, if Empoli also beat Inter.

The Tuscans have failed to win any of their last 15 matches between Serie A and the Coppa Italia, and their fans have run out of patience with the Della Valle Family, calling for them to sell the club.
