Protests at Roma’s pre-season training sessions have continued, with controversial striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo labelled a “coward”.

Roma’s training over the past week has been marred by displays of anger from their furious fans, who have been chanting against the club’s owners and demanding that director of sport Walter Sabatini and general manager Claudio Fenucci lose their jobs.

Some of the club’s fans are becoming increasingly angered at the players and the situation has gone from bad to worse since their 1-0 Coppa Italia final defeat to arch-rivals Lazio in May.

A large banner at a training session earlier in the week read: “26-5-13, we will never forget the way you doused Roma in mud,” referring to the day they lost to Lazio.

Players have also been verbally abused regularly when arriving at training.

Supporters have now turned their attentions to Osvaldo, who has been linked with a move away from the Italian capital.

Osvaldo abused former coach Aurelio Andreazzoli after the Coppa Italia final loss and then took to Twitter to vent his fury after being a second-half substitute.

As a result, he has been targeted by Roma fans, who brought more banners to Saturday’s training session.

They read: “Osvaldo is a coward” and “26-5-13: Nothing will go unpunished.”

Osvaldo scored 17 goals in 31 matches in all competitions for Roma last season.
