Inter captain Mauro Icardi is "finished" at the Serie A giants, according to the club's biggest ultras group.
In his recently released autobiography, Icardi claimed that he became "a hero" to his teammates after confronting an ultra leader following a 3-1 defeat to Sassuolo.
But the Curva Nord - Inter's most prominent ultras faction - has now fired back at the 23-year-old Argentine - who recently signed a new deal at San Siro.
"Icardi, as far as we are concerned, you're finished," the Curva Nord stated on their official website.
"We are horrified, that book is ridiculous and with regards to that incident there are only lies.
"We merely ask for effort and honesty, while he depicts us as threatening figures, so evidently something is wired wrong in his head. An individual like this does not deserve the captain's armband.
"There are no more excuses. We considered him young, a bit of an idiot (like many), but deep down a good lad.
"Instead this is an individual who cannot be allowed to wear the Inter armband. It's not for us, but Inter simply don't deserve this.
"You are finished with us. You're done. TAKE THE ARMBAND OFF, YOU CLOWN. Yes, that is what we demand."
Icardi has netted six goals in Serie A so far this campaign, and will may well be in for a hostile reception when Inter - who sit in ninth after a stuttering start under Frank De Boer - host 10th-placed Cagliari at San Siro on Sunday.
