Gabrielli admits he’s a Juve supporter

Franco Gabrielli, former prefect of Rome and head of the police, was asked by La Gazzetta dello Sport about Roma’s victory over Juve and admitted that he’s a supporter of the Bianconeri.

How did the 3-1 defeat of Juve against Roma complicate the race for the Scudetto?
It was merely a delay that will give us even more satisfaction once the finish line is reached because we know how it will end.

As you remember, Gabrielli is responsible for the implementation of the barriers in the Curva Sud, which resulted in an over year protest by fans.
