Rome erupts in anger after United warn of city’s danger

Sir Alex Ferguson once claimed before a European Cup tie in Milan that “when an Italian tells me it’s pasta I check under the sauce to make sure”. He has chosen his words more carefully ahead of tonight’s quarter-final against Roma but Manchester United’s capacity for upsetting Italian hosts has resurfaced in the form of an extraordinary diplomatic row.

As Ferguson and his players trained last Bicester Village Prada Refund night on the Stadio Olimpico pitch, United found themselves facing demands for an apology from, among others, the mayor of Rome. He was among those to have been upset by the Authentic Prada Outlet Online Usa club’s decision to write to their fans, warning them of the “real danger” of being attacked by Roma’s “Ultras”, and advising them of several areas in the city centre they should keep away from.

An open letter was published on United’s website, as well as being sent to the 4,500 supporters with tickets, and has subsequently been picked up by an outraged Italian press prada online store, with Authentic Prada Handbags For Cheap one commentator accusing the Premiership Bicester Village Prada Online leaders of making a “weather forecast of violence” and several newspapers even questioning whether there are “racist” undertones. Police and security chiefs have been quoted defending the city’s reputation and, to their utter bemusement, United found themselves among the headlines in the television news last night.

A club spokesman tried to defuse the row, explaining that it was not their intention to cause offence and they were “simply passing on advice”, but the damage may have already have been done. The Roma coach, Luciano Spalletti, described himself as “extremely annoyed by this slur” and the mayor, Walter Veltroni, revealed that he had made an official complaint to the city’s British ambassador, Edward Chaplin.

“These comments from Manchester are unfortunate and unpleasant and they are also dangerous because they can create a negative climate,” said Veltroni. “I regard it as very unpleasant and I would like to assure Manchester United fans that they are welcome in our city and that the true image of Rome is very different to how it has been portrayed by their club.”

United had urged their fans not to take the public transport shuttles to the Stadio Olimpico and not to travel on the metro to the Piazza Flaminio or the Ponte Nenni bridge, because these were routes commonly taken by the Ultras. The Campo de Fiori, a square in the city centre, was also identified as a no-go area after three Middlesbrough fans were stabbed, and 10 injured, when they were ambushed before a Uefa Cup tie last season.

Liverpool’s fans have also been attacked in the past but that did not stop the Prefect of Rome, Achille Serra, and the city’s highest-ranking security Bicester Village Prada Store Number officer, Jean Leonard Touadi, from joining Veltroni last night in speaking out publicly about what they consider to be a smear on the city’s reputation.

“I’m surprised and worried after reading what Manchester United have said,” declared Serra. “Everybody should try to contribute to keep a serene and calm environment but this kind of letter is going in the opposite direction. Those words create a hot atmosphere and risk incidents.”

Touadi added: “I find it very surprising that officials from Manchester United would decide to suggest that Rome is an unsafe city. It is over the top and unnecessary. Recent statistics have shown that Rome is one of the safer cities in Europe, certainly a lot safer than London and many Authentic Prada Fairy Bag Sale English cities.”

The row has been of intense embarrassment Authentic Prada Fairy Bag Sale to United and has increased the temperature before their first-ever European tie in Rome. Ferguson hopes his players can silence a 75,000 sell-out crowd tonight but the furore surrounding United’s letter, including a warning about “primitive conditions” inside the stadium, guarantees a hostile reception.

Ferguson seemed bemused when he was asked about it yesterday, insisting that such letters are Bergdorf Goodman Prada Mens Shoes commonplace. “We always issue a letter for every away trip,” he said. “More importantly, the Italian police have been very communicative with our people. Hopefully, everything will be OK tomorrow. I don’t anticipate trouble but the Italian police are very experienced and I think they can deal with it.”

United are genuinely appalled by the controversy and Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Uk Sale are worried that Spalletti is trying to use it to whip up the crowd. “Manchester United have made a serious allusion Authentic Prada Clutch against our city and our people and I am really annoyed,” said Spalletti. “I have been working in Rome for a few years now and I can assure everyone our fans are very passionate in supporting our team but they are not violent. I don’t think it’s fair to describe Rome as a dangerous city and I think the people of Manchester should arm themselves with some more information on our city before writing such bad things.”
