Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has hit out at fans after they displayed a banner mocking the Superga tragedy.

The disaster saw the Grande Torino side perish when their place crashed into the Basilica di Superga on the hills surrounding Turin in 1949.

“I don’t believe that the supremacy of supporters should be manifested by remembering the tragedies of others,” Agnelli told the press.

“You see these banners in stadiums all over Italy with gratuitous insults that absolutely have to be condemned.

“It is a shame to see that in a stadium where the atmosphere is noted by the Curva – they have the power to give personality to an arena.

“Tragedies, as far as I am concerned, don’t have club loyalties.”
