Lazio have issued a statement after what occurred this past afternoon in the Piazza Loreto in Milan: racist and fascist behavior from a group of Ultras. A group of individuals, this is clearly against the values of the club and 99% of the Laziali fan base. It is unfortunate that this is occurring and hope actions are taken to condemn these individuals…

S.S. Lazio takes a clear stance on being distant from behavior and events that do not respond in any way to the values of sport supported and promoted by the club for 119 years. In addition, it also rejects and disputes the simplistic tendency of the media to consider the entirety of Lazio supporters jointly responsible for acts carried out by a few isolated members, for reasons foreign to any form of sporting passion. The club has always fought for respect for legality and correct conduct.
