The club patron has repeatedly been urged to sell by ultras, especially after negotiations with an American group led by former striker Gianluca Vialli failed.

According to news agency ANSA, Ferrero received bullets, notes threatening his life as well as banners placed around his home promising to ‘visit’ him.

Udinese fans urge Pozzo to sell

Udinese are ready to start pre-season training, but their fans put up a banner urging the Pozzo family to sell up, as ‘since Watford it’s been seven years of failure.’

The ultras have often accused the Pozzo family of putting more time and money into their Watford FC project than Udinese, although that could well change following the relegation from the Premier League.

The Friulani narrowly avoided the drop again this season and a printed banner was placed outside the Dacia Arena this morning.

Perugia threatened after relegation

Perugia were relegated to Serie C last night after losing the play-off to Pescara, sparking a furious and threatening response from the ultras.

The Grifone won the game 2-1, but as it was 3-3 on aggregate, the tie went through extra time and they lost on penalties.

Around 700 angry fans trapped the squad in the Stadio Curi until 2.25am, with only a police presence keeping the peace.

Bottles and fireworks were thrown at the gates of the arena.

Atalanta fans donate money to hospital

Atalanta ultras donated €60,000 to a local hospital, the money they would’ve been owed for the Champions League match with Valencia played behind closed doors.

The club had reimbursed the supporters who had been due to make the trip to Valencia on March 10 to see the historic Round of 16 fixture.

Instead, 1,200 of them chose to donate the money to the local Papa Giovanni XXIII hospital in Bergamo.

Those funds were presented today, as a group of the ultras visited the facility.

Ultras march descends into violence

Ultras from many Serie A and B clubs, plus representatives of Far-Right political parties, staged a protest in Rome that descended into violence.

The groups came together to protest the on-going lockdown measures and the way that the Italian Government has dealt with the COVID-19 pandemic.

It came just days after another smaller protest from the so-called Gillet Arancioni (Orange Gillet) group, who again were complaining that the country has not yet been completely opened up.

Lazio fans represented in the stands

Lazio have launched an initiative to raise funds for charity and give fans the chance to make their presence felt by putting their images on cardboard cut-outs at the Stadio Olimpico.

The campaign is called ‘Tu non sarai mai sola’ (You’ll never be alone), with two different benefits stemming from the collaboration.

On the one hand, it’ll allow the fans to still be present when games are played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Lazio will let fans make their presence felt

Lazio have announced they will allow their fans to have a presence at the Stadio Olimpico when Serie A games resume – by putting their photographs on seats.

The league has been locked down since March 10, but the medical protocol for group training was finally agreed this week.

It’s believed this should allow fixtures to start up again from June 13-20, but naturally they’ll be behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Materazzi: 'Zidane, racist abuse and insults'

Marco Materazzi reveals what he said to Zinedine Zidane before the headbutt, but shows a lack of understanding when it comes to racist abuse. ‘Fines are so self-righteous now.’

The former Inter defender has always been a controversial figure, none more so than when he was knocked down flat by Zidane during the 2006 World Cup Final.

Speaking in an Instagram Live chat with Nicolò De Vitis, Matrix gave a slightly different version of what he said to Zidane.

Only in Serie A: Infamous San Siro scooter

Inter fans smuggling a scooter into the stands of San Siro would've been stupid enough, but setting fire to it and throwing the vehicle over the rail was pure madness.

Words: Livio Caferoglu

The 2000-01 season will go down as one of Inter’s worst in recent memory. Out of the Champions League at the qualifying stage, thrashed 6-0 by city rivals Milan and finishing almost 25 points behind Scudetto winners Roma in fifth place, the nadir of the Nerazzurri’s negative campaign came at San Siro on May 6, when they hosted Atalanta.
