Icardi Threatened By Inter Fans

As the row between Mauro Icardi (and his annoying wife/agent Wanda Nara) and Inter Milan rumbles on, with Inter trying to offload him but Icardi digging his heels in and even talking about taking legal action to block a move, Inter fans have displayed a banner that can only be deemed threatening. The banner, which was displayed right next to the Argentine's home, read: "Icardi, it's too much now, Milan is a small place." The O's on the banner were all turned into targets. Wanda has recently confirmed that Boca Juniors are interested in signing him.

 


Flop Throws Parting Dig At English Football

Giannelli Imbula, who had been so poor a signing for Stoke City he was made to train with the youth team, has hit out at English football after leaving the Potters for Lecce. Imbula told Italian journalists: "Each player has his own story, so for me it was a difficult type of play (in England). I prefer the football like in Spain or Italy where you start with the keeper and then play. That is an important choice for me (in coming here). England is difficult for players who want to play proper football." Yes, famously Pep Guardiola hates his team to play out from the back so you can see why Imbula is saying that. Or could it just be that he was an idiot and moved for the money without realising Stoke were an out of touch side still playing football from the 1980s when he signed for them?

 


Lukaku Targeted For Racist Abuse

New Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku managed to keep his composure and score a penalty (showing Manchester United what they are missing right now!) despite a torrent of monkey chants from the crowd as his team beat Cagliari 2-1. Racist abuse is an ongoing problem at Cagliari, with both Moise Kean and Blaise Matuidi receiving racist abuse there last season while playing for Juventus.
