Roma ultras attack team bus

There is no crowd trouble between fans, but angry Roma ultras are throwing rocks at the team bus after their Coppa Italia defeat.

The Giallorossi were beaten 1-0 by arch rivals Lazio this evening, losing the silverware and the opportunity to qualify for the Europa League.

It seems as if the pact between ultras to avoid clashes held steady, as there have been no incidents of fighting between fans today.

However, the Roma supporters are taking their anger out on the team and around 200 were at the Trigoria training ground tonight.

Fans threw rocks, eggs and other objects that reportedly smashed the windows of the team bus.

There were insulting chants calling the players ‘mercenaries’ and blaming President James Pallotta and directors Franco Baldini and Walter Sabatini for the season’s failure.

Riot police are on the scene if the situation deteriorates further.
