Fiorentina apologise for Galliani abuse

Fiorentina have formerly apologised to AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani after sections of the crowd pelted him with missiles during the clubs' 2-2 draw in the Serie A.

However, the Viola still suggest the 68-year-old was partly to blame for inciting the trouble.

The incident occurred as goals to David Pizarro and Adem Ljajic secured a valuable point for Fiorentina, keeping the club in the hunt for a Champions League spot.

But the home draw did little to settle tensions in the crowd, with hostile fans attacking Galliani and forcing him from the stands.

However, Fiorentina were quick to apologise to Galliani, despite accusing him of nearly accosting a child.

"Fiorentina apologise if anyone has shown a lack of respect to Milan and Galliani, a director that enjoys our highest esteem," a club statement read.

"We will evaluate the photos and images of those excited moments in the presidential box. If someone has behaved incorrectly, they will no longer set foot in there.

"Of course, Galliani has not helped to calm people down - he almost had tangled with a child. But, I repeat, we apologise and we will make sure that certain things do not happen again."
