    Grin Lazio striker Di Canio defends raised arm salute (yes he did it again!)

    Lazio striker Di Canio defends raised arm salute

    ROME, Dec 13 (Reuters) - Lazio's Paolo di Canio has defended making a raised arm salute at the end of last weekend's 2-1 defeat at Livorno.

    The incident happened as the controversial 37-year-old walked off after the final whistle under grandstands containing Lazio fans.

    "I saluted my people with what for me is a sign of belonging to a group that holds true values, values of civility against the standardisation that this society imposes upon us," the striker told Italian radio station Radio Spazio Aperto.
    "I'm proud to be able to count on such people and I will continue to salute them in this way."

    The match in Livorno was as much a conflict of political views as a sporting event. Livorno are known in Italy for the hard left-wing politics of their supporters while Lazio's ultras have often aligned themselves with the far right.
    The game was played in a poisonous atmosphere. The home supporters chanted anti-facist songs while the visitors held up a swastika.
    "I was the object of very heavy insults throughout the match, but I didn't react," Di Canio said.

    It is not the first time Di Canio has made the raised arm gesture. He was fined 10,000 euros ($11,900) for doing the same at the end of Lazio's win over arch-rivals Roma in January.
    Italy's Football League has not taken action over the latest incident. If it does, Di Canio expects his club to defend him.
    "I expect a robust defence from my club and this time I'm not going to settle for anything less.
    "I expect my president to defend me, just like presidents do in other clubs, otherwise I'm going to be really pissed off."

    However, the chances of a split between Lazio and its most famous player are growing because Lazio appeared to distance themselves from the gesture.
    "Lazio repudiates any kind of racism or politicisation of football, both on the pitch and off it, and invites its shareholders and its fans to react against any attempt to pollute the language of sport," it said on its website.

    Di Canio's gesture caused particular outrage amongst Jewish groups in Italy. The president of the Italian Maccabi Federation, Vittorio Pavoncello, called on Lazio and Italian soccer authorities to take action.
    Di Canio brushed their protests aside.
    "If we are in the hand of the Jewish community it's the end," he said. "If action is taken because one community is up in arms it could be dangerous."

    "E tutti si scandalizzano quando sentono dire: quel tale tipo di mammifero o di uccello ormai è sparito dalla faccia della terra, non lo vedremo più; è una grave perdita. Certo, si tratta di gravissime perdite.
    Ma non sarebbe forse più grave se sparisse una comunità umana?? --Bruno Salvadori

    Seven pictures of northern European males and seven pictures of northern African males were presented randomly via a computer screen to 82 Italian female undergraduates of the University of Padua, Italy.
    Each picture depicted a full frontal face with a neutral facial expression. Participants were asked to classify each picture as either northern Italian or southern Italian.
    On average, the seven pictures depicting northern Europeans were classified as northern Italians 81% of the time. The seven pictures depicting northern Africans were classified as southern Italians 83%
    of the time.

    That was pretty daring to try that again especially after the last time. The Ultras must really love him. Didn't Lazio sell Mihailovic for doing that?

    Hmm i don't think that Mihajlovic was sold for that or some other scandalistic reason..simply he followed Roberto Mancini while the latter as appointed as Internazionale manager

    Rumours are about that Di Canio might be heading back to England - some of the stuff he pulled in England was legendary. I wonder if he'll salute over here?

    With regards to Mihajlovic, uefa.com said:

    [Mihajlovic]... fell foul of the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body, who fined the player €12,700 for his repeated unsporting behaviour and banned him for eight matches for spitting at and kicking an opponent during the loss to Chelsea FC. In the summer he left Lazio, following coach Roberto Mancini to FC Internazionale Milano on a 12-month contract ...

    Di Canio is a character we unfortunately completely miss in Germany.
    He stands firm for his beliefs.
    It's sad to see though that the club Lazio Roma betrays him and their fans.

    Well i have never heard that he left Lazio for that reason..

    His contract with Lazio expired in the end of that season so he was a free agent while he joined Internazionale (a much richer team that indeed raised his salary...), believe me, in Italy we had players that acted far worse than Mihajlovic and thy're still in their old teams (Totti is a bright example)
