Racism in the Italian League

Racism in the Italian League

Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti said that his team would be withdrawn on the match if Catalan defender Claudio Coulibaly’s racist chants were repeated as during the 0-0 defeat at Inter Milan in San Ciro in the 18th round of the Calcio on Wednesday.

The Senegalese defender lost his nerve after receiving a yellow card after an intervention against Matteo Politano on 81st minute and was expeld off for applause for the decision.

Ancelotti said Napoli had asked three times to stop the match after Coulibaly was subjected to racist cheers from the stands.

“The next time we will stop playing and leave the stadium even if we lose the match,” said Ancelotti, who indicated that the fans were directed to stop cheering three times without stopping the game.

“I’m not happy because we asked to stop the match three times because of racist chants against Coulibaly.”

“The boy was angry, he was an educated player and he was targeted. What happened was not only bad for us but for Italian football.”

“we suffered after Coulibaly was sent off because we played with ten men.”
