Mayor of Rome blasts Feyenoord fans

The Mayor of Rome has blasted Feyenoord fans after they ran riot through the city centre.

The historic Fontana della Barcaccia in Piazza di Spagna, recently renovated and built in 1692, with a large chunk smashed off the side.

The fountain itself is full of litter, broken bottles, debris and a Feyenoord flag.

"Rome has been devastated and wounded by this," wrote Mayor of Rome Ignazio Marino on Twitter.

"We are in contact with the authorities and the Dutch Ambassador. It will not end here. I protested and demanded an explanation from those who are responsible for public order in this city.

"We found damage to the Barcaccia, which had just been restored. This violence is unacceptable and Romans will not be the ones who have to pay for it."
