Roma ultras attack Kolarov again

The row between Roma ultras and Aleksandar Kolarov has clearly not been resolved, as there was an insulting banner as well as chants this evening.

The banner was visible in the Curva Sud during the Champions League Round of 16 fixture against FC Porto.

This all started on the way to the 7-1 Coppa Italia defeat to Fiorentina, as the team was heckled at the train station by fans and Kolarov reacted with an insult of his own.

De Rossi wants Kolarov resolution

Daniele De Rossi has urged Roma fans and Aleksandar Kolarov to repair their ‘small fracture’, assuring ‘I’d be the happiest man in the world.’

Roma’s return to the Champions League has been marred somewhat by the ongoing feud between their supporters and Kolarov, but De Rossi called for the Giallorossi to pull together ahead of Tuesday’s last-16 first leg against Porto.

Delvecchio: ‘Dzeko, what took you?’

Former Roma striker Marco Delvecchio concedes he thought Edin Dzeko would reach his goal tally sooner, and hopes Aleksandar Kolarov’s bow was a “gesture of apology”.

After scoring in the 3-0 win over Chievo on Friday night, Dzeko moved to 83 goals scored for the Giallorossi.

That puts the Bosnian international level with Delvecchio in eighth place in Roma’s list of all-time top goalscorers.

What did Kolarov bow mean?

Debate is raging among Roma fans as to whether Aleksandar Kolarov’s bow towards them was a gesture of peace or sarcasm.

The full-back has been the subject of insults and criticism in recent weeks, with some ultras even placing offensive graffiti outside his house.

When Kolarov scored in last night’s 3-0 victory over Chievo, he turned towards the away end where the ultras had been insulting him all evening and bowed.

EDF: 'Roma must be solid and attack'

Eusebio Di Francesco appreciated Roma unity and the hard work of the forwards against Chievo, stood up for Aleksandar Kolarov and gave injury updates.

Stephan El Shaarawy, Edin Dzeko and Kolarov got the goals at the Bentegodi, while the Giallorossi also hit the woodwork twice in the 3-0 result.

“We started strong, Chievo fought back and gambled everything, but we were always in control and could’ve had a few more goals,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

Nobody happy after Roma-Milan

Roma and Milan both feel they could’ve had more than a point, writes Matthew Santangelo, but poor officiating was again centre-stage.

Roma and Milan entered Sunday evening’s pivotal clash at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome looking to gain something different.

Gennaro Gattuso’s men have been defensively sound over a prolonged stretch and, more recently, feeding off the January acquisitions of Lucas Paquetá and Krzysztof Piatek. Clinching a Coppa Italia semi-final berth with a commanding 2-0 win over Napoli midweek meant the red and black approached a trip to the capital feeling pretty good about their chances to climb up the table after Inter fell to Bologna hours prior to kick-off.

Roma ultras target Kolarov

Roma tension is escalating, as after the team bus was pelted with rocks and eggs, offensive graffiti is aimed at Aleksandar Kolarov.

The ultras were already piling pressure on the players after a 3-3 draw with Atalanta, as Kolarov and Kostas Manolas reacted angrily when heckled at the train station on their way to Florence.

Just 24 hours later, the Giallorossi were beaten 7-1 in that Coppa Italia quarter-final and returned by bus to avoid a similar showdown with their fans at the station.

Coppa: Fiorentina put seven past Roma!

Federico Chiesa scored a hat-trick with Luis Muriel, Marco Benassi and a Giovanni Simeone double, as Fiorentina humiliated Roma 7-1 in the Coppa Italia quarter-final.

Stefano Pioli’s men will go on to face Milan in the two-legged semi-final.

This was probably the only real shot at silverware for either club, so they fielded practically full-strength teams. Both had dramatic matches at the weekend, as the Viola fought their way to a 4-3 win over Chievo, while the Giallorossi fumbled a 3-0 lead to draw with Atalanta.
