thumbnail Hello,

The Nerazzurri faithful displayed a message mocking the stadium disaster during Saturday's game, with the Turin-based side's fans responding with insulting chants

Inter fans have made the headlines for all the wrong reasons with their behaviour during Saturday night's 2-1 Serie A loss against arch rivals Juventus.

The Nerazzurri faithful displayed a banner with the text "Acciaio scadente: nostalgia dell'Heysel"  which, in English, translates to 'Poor quality iron - nostalgia for Heysel', a reference to the Heysel Stadium disaster in Belgium in 1985 where 39 Juventus fans tragically died after a wall collapsed before the start of the European Cup final between the Turin giants and Liverpool.

The placard was allegedly a response to the news that the Turin authorities have opened an investigation into the structure of the recently-opened Juventus Stadium.

The banner was met with fury by the Juventus fans, who responded by singing offensive chants mocking the death of former Inter president Giacinto Facchetti and insulting current supremo Massimo Moratti, as well as former Nerazzurri director and FIGC commissioner Guido Rossi.

The events during Saturday's meeting between the two Serie A rivals have led to uproar in Italy and have further soured the difficult relationship between Juventus and Inter.
