Empoli president Corsi seeks to end Roma feud

Empoli president Fabrizio Corsi has moved to cool tensions with Roma after his amazing row with their manager Antonio Tempestilli on Sunday.

The pair clashed both inside the stadium and the dressing room after the 2-2 draw and had to be spoken to by security.

Last night, Corsi explained: "When we scored I leapt up and celebrated. I believe some of our fans said something to the Roma directors and they thought I was behind it.

"In the dressing room, I chose to say something, when perhaps I should have tried to cools things down.

"I was wrong to react to the provocation, but over the years I have seen a lot worse.

"If I see Tempestilli again, I will offer my hand. I have a good opinion of him, even if he doesn't think a lot of me."
