“Enter a worm, Lazio is a fascist.” With this banner, a group of white and blue ultras, last night severely attacked Elseid Hysaj, “guilty” of their opinion why he sang “Bella Ciao” during the presentation rite with his new teammates.
A banner that Lazio condemned today, with an official statement. This is the full text: “Lazio firmly condemns the shameful banner against the player Elseid Hysaj. It is not the first episode of its kind.
We will never be on the side of those who deny the values of sport. We are without hesitation on the side of our athlete and all other players involved in pre-season preparations in recent weeks.

We clearly distance ourselves from those who want to use this issue to the detriment of the team all Lazio fans and the club for political purposes. We will not be intimidated by those who use violent and aggressive tones.
There is no space for them in our world, which instead is inspired by the healthy sporting values of loyalty and competition, mutual respect and civic coexistence, which aim to overcome all the fences of social, cultural, economic and racial nature.
