The 84-year-old Taranto fan in tears over the stadium move: “I have a few years left to live, don’t take my team away”

The emotional appeal of Carmine, an 84-year-old loyal Taranto fan, against the closure of the Iacovone stadium moved many users on social networks and reiterated, once and for all, that football is not just a sport. The sports facility may close shortly due to renovation works. The closest suitable stadium to host the team’s matches could be that of Teramo, almost 500 kilometers from Taranto. A considerable distance, which would – literally – distance many fans from the team. Among them also Carmine, who on the cameras of the local broadcaster Antenna Sud claimed his 75 years of faithful presence in the stands. Then, in tears, she expressed all his frustration: “Now I only have a few years left to live – he said, his voice breaking from tears – Why take away the pleasure of seeing my Taranto?”. So the invitation to the authorities: “Get busy, otherwise when I get up there I will curse you for eternity.”
