Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan was reportedly quite unhappy with a group of  rowdy Juventus fans who stuck around the Stadio Olimpico following the draw between the two sides on Monday.

The 26-year-old was already disappointed by the fact that the 10-man Giallorossi had been unable to secure a game winner against their Serie A rivals from the north, with the heated battle eventually ending in a 1-1 result, and it seems like some of the Bianconeri supporters felt like testing his patience before heading back to Turin.

According to Il Messaggero, a group of Juventus fans remained at the Stadio Olimpico to mock and tease some of the Roma players, including Nainggolan, who were taking part in a post-game workout on the pitch by yelling a series of disrespectful chants, which caused the Belgian international to respond with several unflattering gestures and greetings of his own.

The midfielder has been known to clash with fans of rival clubs throughout his career and has apparently developed a stronger disliking for the Old Lady supporters since his arrival at the capital city club.
