Hellas Verona bus attacked

Players and staff of Hellas Verona were forced to spend an extra night in the Italian capital after their team bus came under attack from Roma fans following their 3-0 defeat on Sunday.

Roma ran out 3-0 winners.
Roma ran out 3-0 winners.

To add insult to injury after their first defeat in Serie A this season, the Gialloblu were unable to return home to the north of Italy as planned after a “premeditated” attack on their coach by a group of hooligans as they left Rome.

“It is a terribly grave incident and it is disappointing to have to comment on certain things,” Hellas president Maurizio Setti told the club’s official website. “Miraculously, nobody has been hurt and I express my solidarity with our manager, our coaching staff and all of our players who were present on the coach and who have suffered a great shock.

“Bats and rocks do not belong in football. A terrible incident already happened to our fans in Palermo and it has been repeated again today, this time to the team. We must find remedies and we need exemplary punishments for whoever adopts such delinquent behaviour.”

The attack left the bus in no fit state to continue its journey as the windscreen and several of the lateral windows were smashed, albeit without any of the people on board being harmed.

Police took all the occupants to a hotel, and remained with them there on watch overnight.
