As reported by Italian media outlet LazioNews24 earlier today, the Biancocelesti fans are showing their support for the 27-year-old Albanian full-back following the controversy surrounding his decision to sing Bella Ciao for his initiation song last week.

A banner appeared in Rome earlier this week calling Hysaj a “worm” and stating that Lazio “is fascist”, which is caused outrage amongst the Biancocelesti fans, who have started using the hashtag #IoStoConHysaj (I am with Hysaj) on Twitter to show their support.
