Anthony Taylor, the referee who officiated Roma’s Europa League final loss to Sevilla, has been targeted by Giallorossi fans. His family was threatened and people attacked him at the airport. The Premier League strongly deplores this behavior, and has made no bones about it.

“We are shocked and dismayed by the unacceptable abuse directed at Anthony Taylor and his family on their return from the UEFA Europa League final. No one should have to endure the unforgivable behavior he had to endure yesterday. Anthony is one of our most experienced and accomplished match officials and we fully support him and his family,” said the Premier League in a statement.
