Romagnoli receives death threats over Lazio shirt picture

Images of the 20-year-old wearing the jersey infuriated some Roma supporters, who scrawled threatening messages on the walls of his parents' house
New AC Milan signing Alessio Romagnoli has received death threats after pictures emerged of him wearing a Lazio shirt.

An image of the former Roma starlet - who completed a €25 million move to the Rossoneri this week - in a Lazio jersey went viral in recent days and has prompted outrage from some Giallorossi supporters.


Pictures have appeared on Twitter of threatening messages scrawled on the walls of Romagnoli's parents' house in the Italian capital.

One read "Romagnoli Laziale, your funeral is soon" while another made reference to Alex Zanardi, the former Formula One driver who lost both legs in a horror crash in 2001.

Romagnoli, 20, came through the youth ranks with Roma and impressed while on loan at Sampdoria last season.
