AS Roma owners are coming under growing pressure from fans. Aurelio Andreazzoli kicked off his time in charge with an embarrassing defeat to Sampdoria yesterday, while on the eve of the game there were protests from ultras.

"Yankee go home", "Our Roma is not USA," "Free AS Roma", "Hostage of a business committee", were all chants from angry fans at the Trigoria training complex.

Corriere della Sera says fans also targeted individual players, with only Francesco Totti spared the hostility.

Andreazzoli took charge last week after the sudden dismissal of Zdenek Zeman, which has split the Giallorossi support.
