Inter banner shines light on the darker side of calcio

The glamorous Derby D’Italia draws together two of European footballs most decorated and famous clubs. Inter hosting Juventus at the San Siro attracts viewers worldwide and showcases the very best of Italian football.
However while the action on the pitch lived up to expectations there was also the unpleasant aspect to the rivalry between these two giant clubs lurking in the background. In Inter’s Curva Nord there was an unveiling of a banner claiming ‘nostalgia’ for the Heysel disaster which cost a number of Juventus supporters lives in the 1985 European Cup final.
This banner has been met with widespread condemnation across the peninsulas press and it should of course not be forgotten that elsewhere in Europe there still remains this unfortunate element to rivalries. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
