Reuters reports that: a group of 50 ‘ultra’ supporters stormed onto the basketball court at an Eldo Caserta training session, in Milan and threatened to hold the players hostage after a recent run of poor performances!

Apparently, there were a number of clear and unequivocal threats, but this stopped short of physical contact.

Their actions must have done the trick though as they won their next game against Benetton 77-73!!!
