Verona and Roma fans banned

A group of eight Hellas Verona ultras have been banned from stadiums for trying to bring in Hitler hats, while Roma threw out a supporter for racist abuse.

Police found the woolly hats during a standard search as the Verona fans were preparing to enter the Stadio Dall’Ara for the game against Bologna on January 19.

They all had the same design, namely a swoop of black to resemble Hitler’s hair, with his moustache replaced by the ‘Scala’ – ladder – symbol of the city of Verona.

Napoli fans banned from Coppa trip

It has been confirmed that tickets to the Inter-Napoli Coppa Italia semi-final are banned to residents of the Campania region due to security fears.

The first leg of the semi-final is at San Siro on Wednesday evening, with the second in Naples on March 5.

A statement released today by Inter confirmed that local authorities have banned the sale of tickets to residents of the Campania region.

This effectively bars away fans from making the trip up to Milan for the game, including those who have the so-called ‘fan passport.’

De Rossi the Roma ultra in disguise!

Roma icon Daniele De Rossi put on a complex disguise so he could watch the Derby della Capitale in the Curva Sud – and filmed the experience.

The former midfielder announced his retirement this month after a lifetime in the Giallorossi jersey and brief spell at Boca Juniors.

He decided to have another new experience, to watch his beloved Roma as nothing but a normal fan.

Of course, in order to achieve this, De Rossi had to be in disguise and employed a make-up artist to transform him into a regular ultra for the day.

Napoli combine coaches for success

Napoli turned a corner in the Coppa Italia by blending Gennaro Gattuso’s grit with Carlo Ancelotti’s tactical versatility, argues Kaustubh Pandey.

The Coppa Italia clash at the Stadio San Paolo could have been very different, if some crucial moments could have gone the other way. While Napoli did run out victors who will go through to the semi-finals of the competition against either Inter Milan or Fiorentina, they barely deserved to win the game by a tight 1-0 margin. They had to ride their luck big time and beat the team that has been adept at scoring late goals this season.
