Genoa's Serie A game with Siena this afternoon was suspended for 45 minutes due to crowd disturbances at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
A large group of Genoa fans accumulated around the tunnel area and threatened to invade the pitch early in the second half with their side 4-0 behind.
After a break of 20 minutes, the match officials and the Siena team left the field with the furious fans applauding them, but not letting the Genoa players approach.
Home captain Marco Rossi spoke with the group, who demanded the Genoa players took off their shirts before leaving the field.
After several more minutes, Rossi went round and collected his team mates' shirts, but Giuseppe Sculli refused to take his off and, with tears in his eyes, confronted the supporters, making it clear that he would not cave in to their demands.
A compromise appeared to be reached with the fans retreating from the tunnel and allowing the game to continue.
