The biggest Inter ultra group, Curva Nord and Inter attacker Mauro Icardi aren’t the best of friends at the moment. After Icardi dedicated an entire chapter in his book to describe when an ultra leader tore a shirt from a child’s hands in order to throw it back at the Argentine, Curva Nord replies with an open letter first towards the captain himself:
“Icardi, as far as we are concerned, you’re finished. Why the dirty fiction? We are horrified, that book is ridiculous and with regards to that incident there are only lies.”
and then continuing in general:
“We merely ask for effort and honesty, while he depicts us as threatening figures who gravitate around the club asking for who knows what, so evidently something is wired wrong in his head. An individual like this does not deserve the captain’s armband.
We don’t want to go back over that day when his own teammates hauled him back by the neck to demand a less arrogant attitude towards the Inter population. It is pathetic to read such things talking about us. In his book he writes:
‘I am ready to face them one by one. How many are there? 50, 100, 200? OK, record my message and let them listen: I’ll bring 100 criminals from Argentina who’ll kill them where they stand, then we’ll see.’
“He talks about helping little kids, then invents an incident that never happened to make himself seem superior to us, as if it weren’t obvious to all that we are the only Curva that helps kids design the choreography in the stands.
There are no more excuses. We considered him young, a bit of an idiot (like many), but deep down a good lad. Instead this is an individual who cannot be allowed to wear the Inter armband. It’s not for us, but Inter simply don’t deserve this. You are finished with us. You’re done. TAKE THE ARMBAND OFF, YOU CLOWN. Yes, that is what we demand.”
It will surely be an interesting game this afternoon.
