Icardi has been at loggerheads with Inter Ultras after the fans called for the forward to be stripped of the captaincy following claims made in his book.
The Argentinian striker’s relationship with the Serie A club took an ugly turn after a banner waved at San Siro during the game against Cagliari.
“You use a child to justify yourself and fling mud at us… You’re not a man… You’re not a Captain… You are just a vile piece of s***,” the banner read.
To make the situation more ugly for the striker – was a missed penalty during the first half which was cheered by the home fans.
The Serie A club faithful called for the striker to be stripped of the captaincy following claims made in his book.
The faithful Inter supporters are angry and have protested against a passage in Icardi’s newly released autobiography – where he opened up about an ugly tussle between himself, ex-teammate Fredy Guarin and a section of fans back in Februrary 2015.
The incident relates to a 3-1 Serie A defeat at Sassuolo last season when Icardi and other players had their shirt thrown back at them by the travelling Nerazzurri supporters, which led to the ugly tussle. And now foottheball sources claim that the ongoing controversy could force the player to make a move to Arsenal, who were heavily linked with him in the summer transfer window.
