Italian football hooligans jailed for unprovoked attack on Tottenham Hotspur fans in Rome

One Rome ultra jailed for five-and-a-half years and another for four-and-a-half years for assault and grievous bodily harm on Tottenham fans last November.

Two Italian football hooligans who took part in an unprovoked attack on a group of Tottenham Hotspur fans in a pub in Rome have been jailed.

Mauro Pinnelli, 26, was sentenced to five-and-a-half years in prison while Franceco Ianari, 27, received a jail term of four-and-a-half years, after they were found guilty by a court in Rome of assault and grievous bodily harm.

Ianari, a market stall trader and AS Roma fan who had previously received a stadium ban for violence, was caught by police on a bus shortly after the attack.

Pinnelli, a manual worker, was also an avid Roma supporter.

They were part of a group of “ultra”, or extremist, Roma and Lazio fans who launched the attack on the Spurs fans as they were drinking quietly in The Drunken Ship, a pub in Campo de’ Fiori, one of Rome’s most picturesque piazzas.
