Former Lazio captain Beppe Signori thanked the Lazio fans who chanted his name during last night's team presentation at the Olimpico.

The Bergamo born former striker has been handed a 5 year ban for his 'involvement' in the Calcioscommesse scandal, although Beppegol continues to fight for his innocence.

"To see the entire Curva Nord chanting, shouting my name, for over 20 minutes they thought of me - Beppegol - their former captain. It has given me great inner strength". Signori said to Ansa. "That strength has made me even more aware of my will to fight, to prove my innocence, not to give up".

Signori also thanked those in addition to the Lazio fans who sent him messages of support: "The Romans and the journalists with all their messages of affection, gratitude and solidarity. I am a man who shouts for his innocence and fights for justice".
