Investigate the Digos. A group of around 70 ultras also protested in front of the Erg offices. The fans shouted slogans and distributed a flyer with the words 'Garrone-Mondini shame'. (HANDLE)

A letter of threats accompanied by a blank bullet from a dog slayer was delivered to the headquarters of Sampdoria

in Corte Lambruschini.

Digos is investigating the matter.

In addition to the shell, the envelope also contained a handwritten message in block letters: "This time it's blank, next time it's real".

A group of around 70 ultras had staged a protest in via Martin Piaggio, in front of the Erg offices.

The fans shouted slogans, lit smoke bombs and attached a flyer that read 'Garrone-Mondini shame'.

According to Digos, this protest is not related to the envelope with the bullet.

In recent days, the fans had written a statement against the Garrone-Mondini family


"It doesn't work like this - they wrote -. We have the clear feeling that you are trying to unload the barrel. Do you really think you can get away with this? Blaming Ferrero and the board of directors? You, the Garrone-Mondini family, are the first to blame for this havoc "Ferrero? It was you who welcomed him with great pomp by handing him the keys to the company. If UCSampdoria disappears, you, the Garrone-Mondini family, will be primarily responsible".

Already in November the ultras had marched through the streets of the center against the leadership and "to take a tough stand against everything and everyone who is doing evil to the

The attack that took place today "by a group of self-styled Sampdoria fans at the headquarters of the San Quirico club" marks "the overcoming of the guard level and the tolerance threshold of the right of expression and criticism"


This was written in a note by Edoardo Garrone, former president of Sampdoria, recipient of the threats contained in the envelope with the bullet sent today.

"The climate that originated in the city and in the fans, fed irresponsibly by some media, as well as by social media haters (be they amateurs or professionals) - writes Garrone - has reached a very serious degree of danger. I appeal to the authorities , to opinion leaders, to the media and to the heads of supporter organizations so that we can return to the civil coexistence that characterizes our city. While confirming that I have no responsibility in the current situation of the Uc Sampdoria club, which should be sought elsewhere, I do not dispute the legitimate right to criticize, even if directed at the wrong person,

"UC Sampdoria strongly condemns the episodes that took place today, stigmatizing all forms of intimidation and violence and at the same time hoping that the delicate situation of the club can be managed in the most appropriate ways and venues"


With an official note, the Sampdoria club responded to the two serious episodes that occurred today.

The sending of a letter containing a bullet aimed at Ferrero and Garrone arrived at the headquarters and the protest of about seventy fans at the headquarters of the San Quirico holding of the Garrone family, former owner of Sampdoria, with slogans, smoke bombs and flyers.
