A small faction of Roma ultras have hit out at Roma captain and midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini ahead of the Giallorossi’s match this evening against Benevento.

A photo of a banner reading “Pellegrini is not my captain” appeared on social media this afternoon just one day after the midfielder upset a small minority of Giallorossi supporters. The banner was signed by the ultra group, Brigata De Falchi.

Yesterday, Pellegrini posted a photo of himself and Lazio striker, Ciro Immobile, at dinner together to celebrate the latter’s birthday.

Unhappy that their club captain was dining with the attacker of their bitter rivals, a few supporters took to Instagram to voice their displeasure and send insults to the 24 year-old.
