Young Italian soccer fans courageously taunt Jew sportscaster

ROME (JTA) – A group of youths accosted an Italian Jewish sportscaster after their team lost a key match in London.

In a blog post, David Gaeta, known as the radio “voice” of the Florence soccer team Fiorentina, reported that about 20 youths had accosted him Thursday night as he waited for an underground train after Fiorentina lost to the English team Tottenham Hotspur.

The loss ousted Fiorentina from the European League championships.

“They recognized me and started to chant ‘David Guetta, a train for Mauthausen awaits you,’” he wrote. The chant rhymes in Italian.
