Roma Fans Verbally Abuse Inter Starlet Mario Balotelli

A deplorable act was committed by some Roma fans who insulted Inter forward Mario Balotelli and threw bananas towards him last night during the Italian Under 21 national team training camp, ahead of their clash against Denmark.

The player was in the Ponte Milvio zone together with some team-mates, when he was approached by some Giallorossi supporters, who verbally abused the Nerazzurri attacker and threw at least two bananas towards him according to Sportmediaset.it.

Apparently some bad blood was at the base of this incident, as during the season, the Roma Ultras were silenced by 'Super Mario' under their Curva after he scored a penalty kick against Roma at San Siro.

When questioned by the police, Balotelli shrugged off the racial incident, claiming that it was just "an unimportant episode".
