Roma president James Pallotta: 99.9% of our fans are great

Roma president James Pallotta insists they're suffering due to a tiny minority of fans.

UEFA are investigating Roma after racist chants aimed at Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger on Wednesday.

“Sometimes in all of these stadiums, you know, a couple of people might do something stupid," Pallotta said on Sirius XM.

“It reflects badly, unfortunately, on the 99.9 per cent of people who don't think like that and wouldn't do something like that.

“It's just a terrible thing - in all the cases, not just if there was something going on the other day - but just generally it's unfortunate that teams get blamed for the actions of a few idiots."
