Football is being made a scapegoat for a deeper problem in Italian society, according to AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf.

The game in Italy has once again found itself under the spotlight after another raft of violence on Sunday which left a Lazio fan dead. That incident led to all of next weekend´s domestic football being postponed and the country´s sports minister, Giovanna Melandri, calling for Serie A games to be put on hold "for several weeks".

But Seedorf believes that would be missing the point, saying on Sky Sports News: "The government is using football for the problems in Italian society. They should think about shutting down the government for a couple of weeks."
