Ederson releases anti racism message ahead of Derby della Capitale
Lazio midfielder Ederson has joined forces with Roma compatriot Michael Bradley to release an anti-racism message ahead of this weekend’s Rome derby.
“Rome is the most beautiful city in the world,” the statement read. “And us players want to look good in front of the whole world.
“On Sunday, everyone will look at us and we want to show that Rome is not a racist city.
“We hope that all Romans will enjoy the show.”
Violence has marred recent Derby della Capitale’s and the players hope this show of support can help dampen some of the hostility surrounding this historic match.
Ederson is not expected to start for the Biancocelesti, after playing for 70 minutes in Thursday’s 1-0 victory against Legia Warsaw.
