    BRESCIA FANS OPT TO BACK HELLAS VERONA, NOT BALOTELLI

    Brescia Ultras have released a statement backing Hellas Verona fans, not Mario Balotelli, after the recent display of racist abuse in Italy.

    The striker made headlines during Sunday’s match when he kicked the ball into the stands after Gialloblu fans were heard making monkey noises at him.

    Despite video proving otherwise, Verona coach Ivan Juric, President Maurizio Setti and the mayor of the city have all rushed to defend the fans.

    Unfortunately that trend was continued by members of the Brescia Ultras, who opted to hit out at Balotelli for his perceived arrogance, while defending Luca Castellini, the Verona fan who was banned until 2030 for his comments in a recent interview.

    “The declarations of one of the leaders of the Verona Curva cannot justify the witch-hunt sparked by the media in yet another attempt to criminalize and destroy the world of the Curva,” read a statement.


    “This doesn’t mean that certain chants are legitimate or allowed, but neither are all Verona fans racists and the Verona Curva some sort of KKK group.

    “The arrogance that is continually shown by this person [Balotelli] isn’t justifiable, especially when that is brought to the field and becomes a way to destabilize the team and is embarrassing for the fans.

    “We have absolute no doubts that Balotelli is to all intents Italian, and even Bresciano, but the arrogance he continues to show is unjustifiable.

    “His feats on and off the field, the celebrated ‘Balotellate’, are all too well known.

    “What’s more important is the spirit of sacrifice, passion, respect, motivation, and sweating for the shirt, concepts that appear unknown to him.”

    Nope. It's too subjective. What injury is severe or bad enough that you can't continue?

    Unless they add a clause that the player that gets replaced like this cannot feature in the next 1 match at least..

    They should just go for a fourth substitution imho. I feel 5 is too much, 3 is probably not enough in modern football.
    My username has nothing to do with the player of liverpool fc, it is a reference to an Italian novel.

    Not sure how Balotelli doesn't just pack his things up and leave the club at this point. Regardless of how you feel about him, his own team's most visible fans choosing to opt on the side of racists and against him is incredibly disgusting.

    Ansaldi is a perfect example of a serviceable player who was a victim of our turmoil years. Every single time I've seen him play for Torino or Genoa previously he's looked good. Can't believe he's already 33.

    Verdi is pure trash and anyone who thinks Tonali is currently better than Brozovic is insane. In a few years, with lots of development and refining, maybe. Now, absolutely not.

    I disagree about Ansaldi. He has been good at Genoa and Torino because he could play as a wingback in a back 3 formation. In a back 4 he was a liability. I don't remember a single good game of his while he was at Inter.

    I only remember him playing in a handful of games. Another Biraghi imo.

    They are in crisis. I just let my stream run just a bit more to hear those San Paolo jeers longer. I liked it.

    No, it's just over. They had 8 years to win something but you can't expect that the sucess will continue, specialy without buying players. I was saying that Napoli could have a chance to win the scudetto this year but the truth is that it's over, Napoli needs to rebuild the team and get a new owner.

    24 points out of their last possible 30 for Cagliari. We faced them at the right time.
