Tottenham fan out of hospital in Italy following stabbing before Lazio match
Monday 03 December 2012
A Tottenham fan who was stabbed in an apparent anti-Semitic attack ahead of the club's Europa League match with Lazio was released from hospital last night.
Ashley Mills, 25, was discharged from San Camillo medical facility and said that he hoped to resume normal activity soon following the raid at a pub in a central Rome square two weeks ago.
"My leg is getting a lot better now and that's the main thing," said Mills, who is still in a wheelchair, before flying back to London.
Mills' femoral artery was gashed on his right thigh and his life would have been in danger had the injury not been operated on immediately.
Two Roma fans arrested after the attack remain in jail and have been banned from sports grounds in Italy for five years.
