Stewards In Bizzarre Overreaction To A Small Gathering Of Sampdoria Fans At Roma

Stewards In Bizzarre Overreaction To A Small Gathering Of Sampdoria Fans At Roma

The misconception throughout European football is that most Italian football fans are crazed pyro-loving maniacs – or at least that was the outlandish mistake made by embarrassed stewards last night during Roma‘s 1-0 win against Sampdoria.

Around 30 Sampdoria supporters made the 10-hour round trip to Rome for their Coppa Italia fixture but, despite their lack of numbers, found they were bizarrely met with a ridiculous steward presence.

By Stuart Hynd – @supers0nic_

A total of around 50 stewards can be seen ‘protecting’ and ‘safe-guarding’ the Sampdoria fans in the picture.

The steward-to-fan ratio raises the question – could Roma not find a better use for these security officers?

Are the blue seats which encompass the Samp fans really so threatening?

Also, you have to ask, would these extra officials not be better suited in the Roma end:
