According to reports in Football Italia, Juventus ‘ultras’ (i.e. the hard-line, bordering on hooligan, faction of the club’s supporters) have threatened to make the next year of Juve midfielder Mauro Camoranesi‘s life a living hell if he decides to stay at the club.
Juventus are currently trying to raise money to fund their foray into next year’s Champions League and the club’s board have targeted Camoranesi, who only has a year remaining on his contract, as a player they would be potentially willing to cash in on.
However, the Italian international midfielder has publicly told the club that he wishes to stay next season as his young children are now firmly settled in Turin due to their father having spent the best part of eight years playing in the city.
This news has not gone down well with the Juve ultras, who unveiled a banner at the Bianconeri’s training complex which read;
“We will make those players who have to leave, but want to stay, go through a year of hell.”
I mean honestly. How very dare a man stay at a club he clearly loves, especially for the sake of the well-being of his young family?
What some of these ultra pigs do in the name of a football club is downright disgusting.
