Football: Fan dies during Italy violence
Tuesday 03 February 1998
A Treviso supporter who had heart problems, collapsed and died as rival fans threw rocks and other objects at each other at the end of the game.
There was more trouble in Lecce, when the car taking Luciano Moggi, the general manager of Juventus, away from the ground was pelted with rocks after Juve's 2-0 win. A window was shattered, injuring a passenger. Moggi, who needed a police escort to the airport, was unhurt.
At Verona, police clashed with supporters of the visiting team, Salernitana, before and during their Serie B match. At least seven fans and three officers were injured. In the second half, tear gas was used to disperse fans who were throwing firecrackers and other objects. The gas spread to the pitch and the game was halted for six minutes.
In December, violence hit matches in Milan, Naples, Bergamo and Bologna, despite the increase of security at games following the murder of a Milan fan in 1995.
