AS Roma fans don't mess around when it comes to trolling the referees after loses, they straight find them at the airport and attack. Per ESPN...
AS Roma fans have been condemned by the body responsible for match officials in England after videos showed them harassing Europa League final referee Anthony Taylor at Budapest Airport following their defeat to Sevilla on Wednesday.
Videos posted on social media Thursday showed outraged Roma supporters directing insults and throwing a chair in Taylor's direction as he and his family were escorted away by airport security.
Roma were beaten by Sevilla in a penalty shootout in Budapest, after which Taylor was heavily criticised and angrily confronted by the Italian club's manager Jose Mourinho.
The final was an ill-tempered affair on both sides, with Taylor brandishing a total of 14 yellow cards -- a record for a Europa League match.
"The referee seemed like he was Spanish," Mourinho said. "The result was not fair, and there are a lot of instances to reexamine."
Roma general manager Tiago Pinto continued the attack on Taylor in a statement to Italian news agency ANSA on Thursday.
"We at AS Roma don't want to raise doubts about Sevilla's merits. We believe that with our opponents we put on a great final and honored the stage offered to us by UEFA in the best way," Pinto said.
