MILAN -- Inter Milan captain Mauro Icardi can do no right, it seems, and a missed penalty in a 2-1 defeat by Cagliari in Serie A on Sunday won't help at all.
Icardi had a fantastic start to the season, with six goals in seven matches, but angered a section of fans known as "Ultras" at Inter with comments in his autobiography, which the supporters called "lies" in a lengthy statement.
The Argentina forward attempted to placate the fans with a statement of his own on social media but he was jeered as he walked out ahead of the match, and was greeted in the San Siro by banners insulting the player.
A threatening banner was also left outside Icardi's house.
