AC Milan would like to restore peace between the fans of the Rossoneri and the fans of Genoa.
15 years have passed since Genoa fan Vincenzo Spagnolo was knifed to dead by AC Milan fan Simone Barbagli, a member of an informal group of football hooligans dubbed “The Barbour Ones”, who used to routinely carry bladed weapons to matches.
Since that dreadful event in 1995, the rivalry between the fans of the two clubs is great and now, AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani wants to restore peace between the Rossoneri and the Grifone fans.
The last game between Milan and Geona at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris was played behind closed doors.
The match was played that way in order to avoid a repeat of that action ahead of the Primavera Super Cup between Genoa and Milan’s youth teams on September 8.
