During the Matchday 17 Serie A TIM clash between Lazio and Cagliari, something was spotted at the Stadio Olimpico. In the middle of the Curva Nord, a lengthy banner was being held up addressed to Biancoceleste defender Patric – a message that underlined the anger from the biancoceleste supporters. This was a reaction to the gesture of annoyance made by the Spaniard at the end of the match against Sampdoria in which the player did not go to the Curva to thank fans for their support. After witnessing the message, the player then tried to clarify the whole story on social media.
Here is what he wrote on social media: “I would like to clarify that I have no reason to insult the Curva Nord or disrespect to club and supporters for whom I have been doing a tireless job for since I arrived. I would never allow myself. I always try to give my best in the field. You are adults and rational people, so you have the free will to think what you want, but I continue to give everything for these colors and continue on my way with a clear conscience. Merry Christmas and happy new year to all!“
