Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly has been a subject of racial abuse by Inter Milan fans during his side’s 1-0 defeat to Milan on Wednesday.
Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti asked the officials to suspend the game during the match as he heard ‘monkey chants’ aimed at Koulibaly. The defender was sent off for two bookable offences after he made a rash challenge and then sarcastically applauded the referee.
Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has commented on the matter by saying that society needs ‘education and respect’ to ensure there’s not a repeat of the incident.
“In the world and in football I always want education and respect,” said Ronaldo. “No to racism and any offense and discrimination !!!”
Ancelotti appealed three times for the officials to suspend the match but they refused to do so.
