Roma coach Luciano Spalletti has urged fans to help stamp out hooliganism after violence rocked Italian football once again at the weekend.

Three Catania supporters were rushed to hospital after being stabbed before their match in the Italian capital on Sunday, although none of them are in a critical condition. This latest incident comes just two months after a Lazio fan was shot dead by a policeman and Roma fans rioted in their home city.

"Those that commit acts of violence are delinquents, cretins and cowards," Spalletti told radio programme Anch´io lo Sport. "They need to be stopped and to identify them we need the help of proper supporters."
