(ANSA) – ROME, NOV 01 – “The decision of the French Ministry of the Interior to prohibit Lazio fans from traveling to the city of Marseille is not surprising and is in line with what has already been decided by the Italian authorities in the match The way in which the ordinance is applied on a national scale and its unjustifiable reasons are rather surprising “.

Lazio takes a stand against what it considers to be an “unacceptable free offense to all the Biancoceleste supporters and to the club itself, which has always fought violent behavior and any kind of discrimination, inside and outside the stadiums with concrete actions”, reads note from the biancoceleste club that follows the order in which the transalpine Ministry of the Interior decided to ban the transfer of Lazio fans for the Europa League match scheduled for Thursday in Marseille.

As for the first leg to the Olimpico, in which the transfer to French fans was prohibited by the Italian authorities, so for the return match France applies the same measure.

Waiting for “a clarification by the French institutions and a clear stance of our diplomacy towards expressions of indignation that should indignant all Italians”, the Lazio Sports Society underlines in the note that “it has always put in place initiatives aimed at promoting the principles values ​​of sport and the overcoming of all barriers of a social, cultural, economic, ethnic and religious nature as has been widely recognized even at the highest institutional levels “, recalling how, however,” violence in stadiums is unfortunately a widespread and worrying phenomenon, starting from what happened recently at the Velodrome in Marseille “.
