Kalidou Koulibaly is being supported by football stars after racist attack during Serie A match against Inter Milan at San Siro.
Senegal international got a yellow card 10 minutes before stoppage time and got a red immediately as he was applauding the referee.
However, it has been revealed, that Koulibaly was too emotional because of the racist chants from Nerazzurri fans.
Liverpool star Mo Salah has uploaded a picture with Koulibaly in social media.
Egypt international has written: “There’s no place for racism in football. There’s no place for racism anywhere at all.”

“It shook him — he’s a good-mannered player and he was bombarded by the stadium,” Carlo Ancelotti said after the match (via CNN).
“Despite our requests and the chanting, the game wasn’t suspended. I think it should have been. Next time we’ll stop playing ourselves, whatever happens.
“It was impossible for him to be calm — he cares a lot about the issue of racism and he commits a lot of time to the matter, including in society.
“What happened today is unacceptable — not just for us but for Italian football as a whole.”
Inter Milan will play the two upcoming home matches behind closed doors.
