Ciro Immobile, captain of Lazio Rome, was verbally and even physically assaulted. The incident took place in front of his 4-year-old child’s school, while he was accompanying her with his wife. Shameful behavior,” says Gabriele Gravina, UEFA vice-president and FIGC president.

Ciro Immobile was recently attacked. The attack is said to be the result of “incitement to hatred” by certain media outlets and journalists via social networks, who have reported “reconstructions not inherent to reality”, particularly with regard to Maurizio Sarri’s resignation. In the face of this incident, the Italian center-forward receives the support of Gabriele Gravina. “The verbal attack on Ciro Immobile and his family is shameful. The hostile climate that has been created around the Lazio striker is shameful and goes beyond any tolerable limit of civilization. I have known Ciro for several years, he is an extraordinary footballer, extremely sensitive, and an exemplary professional, all my solidarity goes to him. I hope that we can immediately get back to talking only about sport,” declared the Italian.
