Buffon slams disrespectful Juve fans

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has slammed his own club's supporters for their lack of respect for the victims of a plane crash which wiped out the Torino side in 1949.

Thirty-one people died when the plane -- carrying the Torino team and staff back from a friendly match against Benfica in Lisbon -- crashed into the Superga hill nearby the city of Turin in May 1949.

The Torino team, one of the most successful in the history of Italian football, had won five scudetti in eight years prior to the tragedy. There were no survivors of the crash.

Last weekend, during the Turin derby, won 1-0 by Juventus, a group of Juve fans unfurled banners ridiculing the victims of the crash, earning a 25,000 euro fine from the Lega Serie A and a few harsh words from their own goalkeeper.

"Let's leave the dead in peace, please," said the Italy number one at a news conference in Turkey, where Juve are preparing to face Trabzonspor on Thursday night. "Things like this deserve total respect.

"How can people ridicule dead people? We always say 'rest in peace' when people die, so leave them in peace; it's all about respect. We really need to improve in terms of sporting spirit."

Juve president Andrea Agnelli was equally damning of his club's fans, writing a Tweet in which he said "tragedies must never be mocked." He asked for any such banners or chants to be avoided in future.
