Commisso Fumes at Biraghi Incident During UECL Final

Fiorentina chief Rocco Commisso has labelled West Ham United supporters as animals, after club captain Cristiano Biraghi was left bloodied by objects thrown onto the pitch. David Moyes’ side won the UEFA Europa Conference League – a first major European trophy since 1965 – thanks to a 90th minute winner by Jarrod Bowen. However, the clash was marred by foul incidents.

Commisso spoke to the media (via Corriere dello Sport) upon his return to Florence and declared that the defeat is unfair.

“We deserved to win the match. We could have perhaps won 3-0. there were some cases on the pitch where the referee should have done better. I’m sorry for the fans.”

As Biraghi headed towards the corner, he was hit by a number of objects, including plastic beer cups and most notably an Elf Bar vape, which struck him directly in the head. Commisso condemned this act by West Ham fans.

“Jovic with a broken nose and what happened to Biraghi is unacceptable. I spoke already to the Premier League president and told him that they are all animals in the way they treated our players.“

Hammers fans also clashed with Viola fans before the match and with the riot police after the game.

This is the second cup final defeat Commisso has witnessed his Fiorentina outfit endure in the space of two weeks, following their 2-1 loss to Inter in the Coppa Italia, as their season comes to a bitter end.
