Napoli Supporters Were ‘Prepared For Clashes’ Before Inter Match

Napoli Supporters Were ‘Prepared For Clashes’ Before Inter Match

New evidence has emerged regarding the scuffles outside San Siro prior to Inter’s Boxing Day match against Napoli, Gazzetta dello Sport reported today.

Italian police yesterday arrested two men known to be involved in Inter ultra groups, identified as 49-year-old Nino Ciccarelli and 48-year-old Alessandro Martinoli.

The latter is believed to have been a friend of Daniele Belardinelli, 35, who died as a result of the violence and led a group of ultras comprising Inter and Varese supporters.

However the police’s interrogation of Ciccarelli, who heads up the Viking Nerazzurri group, uncovered new evidence which suggests Inter’s fans were not the sole aggressors on Boxing Day.

Ciccarelli undressed himself to show police the injuries he had sustained and revealed wounds caused by knives and screwdrivers, pointing towards a planned attack from Napoli fans.

The evidence tallies with reports police found several weapons aboard a minibus taking Napoli ultras to the match, although this was not the same coach which allegedly ran Belardinelli over and killed him.

Arrests for Napoli supporters could follow in the next few days.
