With Balotelli the star of the show at the Avignon Stadium, the Giallorossi are known for their huge crowds and the crowd has been restless since the start of the season.
The crowd has also been unhappy with the behaviour of some players and the manager has been criticised for his reaction.
The stadium was packed with thousands of fans, but it wasn’t always a good feeling for the fans.
On March 4, when Balotella scored a brace, the atmosphere at the stadium was almost as if they were waiting for the home side to score, but Baloteli and his team-mates showed no signs of that.
They were clearly nervous and looked at each other as if to say: “No, we’re not going to go, it’s time to go.”
The players didn’t say anything to the fans and Balotello, the centre-forward, and his teammates looked down and didn’t move at all.
It was as if the stadium, which was supposed to be a celebration of football, had been turned into a funeral.
As for Balotelini, he was in the middle of his celebrations and looked like he was going to give the crowd a hug but the moment was lost.
The fans didn’t get a hug from him, either, because they wanted to keep cheering for the opposing team.
The crowd’s frustration reached a new level on March 20 when the team’s coach, Gianluigi Donnarumma, made a comment to the media that was said to be directed at the players.
Donnarampi told journalists: “Balotelli doesn’t know how to control his emotions and he doesn’t want to go on with the game.”
He also said that if the crowd didn’t like the way the team behaved, they should go home and watch their favourite team play.
On April 3, the coach and players of the Bianconeri had a meeting with the media.
They tried to calm down the situation but nothing could be done.
The tension reached a point where the players even went to the bathroom.
The fans are angry with the coach, Donnarums message and the way Balotelle’s team-mate was treated.
They want a change.
