(REPEAT WITH CORRECT TITLE AND SUBTITLE) (ANSA) – TIRANA, MAY 25 – “To the Roma fans who are already or are arriving in Tirana and are without a match ticket, and I think there are many, I tell them to go to their ‘fan zone’ reserved, which is a practically ‘sealed’ park located south of the stadium “.
This invitation is addressed by the Ambassador of Italy to Albania, Fabrizio Bucci, who confesses himself to be “Roman and Romanist” and who will be present “with my Giallorossi scarf around his neck” tonight at the Kombetare Arena to attend the Conference final. League Roma-Feyenoord: “I hope to enjoy the match”.
In the meantime, he has prepared in the embassy “a task force that has been at work 24 hours a day for two days to be ready for any eventuality and provide assistance. First of all, I have to make sure that the machine works”.
But Ambassador Bucci also wants to say something about those, of Romanist faith, who have been stopped by the police or even already repatriated. “They are pseudo-fans – says Bucci -. Some of them we know that they were stopped because they tried to overcome the protection cordon set up by the police in the center. Others were found with knives, jacks and clubs and then, speaking as a fan , I say that this is sport, and not a battle. Anyone who goes to the game as if he were going to war is a criminal and I think there is nothing else to add “.
There is also time for a recommendation: “Our strong suggestion to the authorities here not to serve alcohol in glass containers has been listened to – says the Ambassador – but groups of drunk Dutch supporters have been around since yesterday and when are in these conditions they become dangerous, as we saw last night: be careful “(ANSA).
