The President of the Italian Football Association has apologised to the English FA following a "disgraceful attack" on Tottenham fans in Rome. FIGC President Giancarlo Abete condemned the violence:
Once again, football has given a handful of delinquents the excuse to take out their racist and anti-semite anger. There is evidence of this undoubted motive, which is detrimental to the image of Italian football and doesn't match with the traditional hospitality and welcome of the city of Rome.
The city authorities and I publicly express our firm condemnation, with my personal indignation at these events. I beg you to send our apologies to all Tottenham's fans - and in particular to those families directly involved. I will personally follow the investigation's development and remain at your disposal should my assistance in any further matters be required.
