Inter Milan fans jumped striker Mario Balotelli in the San Siro carpark after last night’s 3-1 Champions League win over Barcelona.
Balotelli infuriated home fans with provocative gestured during the game.
Videos showed footage of supporters with access to the car park beneath San Siro trying to attack the striker as he walked to his car.
Security staff were forced to intervene in order to lead him to safety.
“He’s a youngster, this thing happened and in all honesty I’d prefer to think about the victory,” said President Massimo Moratti.
“This is a wound that will heal and could be a life lesson that’ll prove useful for him.”
