A small group of Roma ultras sent a clear message to Italy’s footballing authorities after another refereeing gaffe cost the Giallorossi points.

In what’s become a theme this season, Roma found themselves on the receiving end of yet another headscratching decision from referee Rosario Abisso, who chalked off a 90th minute goal from Nicoló Zaniolo after consulting with VAR.

He ruled striker Tammy Abraham committed a foul in the buildup, thus overturning Zaniolo’s winning goal and a victory for the Giallorossi. But the controversy didn’t end there—just moments after his decision, an eager Abisso sent Zaniolo off for dissent after the attacker expressed frustration for his goal being taken away.

As a result, a small contingent of Roma ultras unfurled a banner beneath the FIGC’s offices in Rome on via Allegri to convey their anger.

“The rules are the same for everyone, but we are not all equal in the face of the rules. Now enough, clowns,” their banner read.
