Roma punished for offensive banners….

Italian side Roma have been ordered to close part of their stadium at their next home game after fans displayed banners insulting the mother of a Napoli fan who died following clashes between rival supporters last year. Serie A’s disciplinary tribunal said the banners were “by their content provocatively insulting to the mother of a supporter of the opposing team, who died in dramatic circumstances”. The mother of the Napoli fan has spearheaded a campaign against soccer violence since her son’s death.
