The far right fringe of Lazio supporters sent a clear message to the club’s latest signing, Elseid Hysaj.
The message is clear. The Lazio ultras displayed their convictions by deploying a banner to the club’s latest recruit, Elseid Hysaj. “Hysaj vermin, Lazio is fascist”, could we read.
The controversy surrounding Elseid Hysaj continues to #Lazio, accused by the ultras of having sung “Bella Ciao” during the integration ritual. The club officially defended it, but this evening banner of the ultras in Rome (photo via Gazzetta): “Hysaj parasitic, Lazio is fascist”. pic.twitter.com/xqZuGA6ROL

What is reproached to the former Neapolitan? For having sung “Bella Ciao” during an integration ritual. This song, popularized by the series la Paper house, is a song of revolt by Italian partisans, those resistance fighters who fought Nazi Germany (including fascist Italy) during the Second World War.
The club immediately reacted by dissociating itself from its most ultra supporters, who remain in the minority.
