Daniele De Rossi achieved his dream of watching the Derby della Capitale in the Curva Sud – though he wore a disguise in order to do so.
The Roma legend recently brought an end to his playing career after a brief spell at Boca Juniors, and he wasted little time in watching his beloved Lupi as a fan.
De Rossi hired a make-up artist to transform him before travelling to the Curva Sud with friend Valerio Mastandrea.

Ecco cosa succede quando tuo marito decide di infiltrarsi in curva sud per esaudire il suo sogno e vedere il derby! Abbiamo perso un pomeriggio intero, ore di trucco, traumatizzato i figli ma era felice come un bambino. (Ti amo) (More in stories) . . . . #romalazio #sogni #danielederossi #madimmete #reflectionsofme?
It was all captured on video by wife Sarah Felberbaum, who congratulated her husband on achieving one of his dreams.
“This is what happens when your husband decides to infiltrate the Curva Sud to make his dream come true of watching the derby!,” she wrote on Instagram.
“We spent a whole afternoon on this, hours of make-up, traumatised the kids, but he was as happy as a child. (I love you).”
The match ended in a 1-1 draw with goals from Edin Dzeko and Francesco Acerbi.
