AC Milan’s Ultras group the Curva Sud have explained the meaning and significance of last night’s choreography before the derby against Inter.
It was yet another fantastic display from the Curva and the game ended up playing out as a 1-1 draw, which you could have backed via Bonus Bets if you fancied a flutter. The Curva dedicated a wonderful tifo to staff on the frontline of the pandemic and the victims of Covid-19 before last night’s draw against Inter.
The display started with banners reading: “For those who battled, and did not make it. For those who fought on the front line to save the country. We pay tribute to all those by dedicating the most important display of the season to them.”
Through their page on Instagram, the Curva Sud published a message about last night’s choreography during which they described the meaning behind the display.
“Everyone knows that Milan-Inter has always been ‘The match’ for us at the Curva Sud. A year and a half ago, when closed at home we felt serene at all hours and there were hundreds of deaths.
“The day has arrived and we have kept what we promised ourselves, sure that we have hit the mark again this time, because there are historical periods of life that go beyond football, sport and normal everyday life!
“In those weeks men and women went down with their bare hands into the trenches without delay, to try to save our grandparents, our fathers, our brothers, our friends.
We said to ourselves, ‘the day we return to the stadium they will be the champions to thank’.”
“The group has also surpassed itself this time in the idea and in the realisation, dedicating itself day and night to this work of art since August after the draw of the calendars. Thanks to the 150 guys who set up this show from 9 on Sunday morning, to AIMC for participating in the project, and to the hundreds of people on the curve who allowed us to finance ourselves (as always), this latest masterpiece.
“Always with Milan in your heart, sure that from today you will be even more proud to be a Milan fan! AVANTI BANDITI, AVANTI CURVA SUD!”
