Inter captain Icardi condemns racism following chants allegedly aimed at Napoli's Koulibaly

Footballers around the world have been quick to condemn the treatment of Koulibaly by Inter fans, something we're sadly all to familiar with, especially in recent months.

However, Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri said only the police can take the decision to suspend a match when asked for his opinion on the incident.

The chants intensified when the 27-year-old was sent off with ten minutes to go in the match for sarcastically clapping the referee. "They'll probably make us lose the game if we walk off, but we are prepared to do it", he said. He added that football should work with schools to "educate" children.

"I could not agree more with what Ancelotti said", Gattuso told Milan TV. He explained that similar incidents also occur in "other civilised countries".

Players including Cristiano Ronaldo and Inter captain Mauro Icardi have publicly condemned racism in the aftermath of the ugly episode.

The Senegal worldwide will now serve a two-match ban for the sending off - one for an accumulation of yellow cards for the campaign, and the other for the dismissal.

"We're looking into appealing", Mattia Grassani to Radio Kiss Kiss.

After the game, his manager Carlo Ancelotti was particularly angry, especially at the refusal of his continuous requests to stop the game on the back of the repeated racist abuse. "Probably a strong signal in the first half would have warned the fans and dissuaded the idiots from continuing with such behaviour, and then we would never have got to that gesture from Koulibaly".

"It's the moment to say "Enough" to hatred in football, "Enough" to racism and any form of discrimination in the stadium", he said.

Meantime, UEFA are "very concerned" by what they see as the failure to follow guidelines for dealing with racist chanting.

"I think it's time for football to stop, for the games to be interrupted".

Sarri, who left Napoli for Chelsea last summer, expressed his support for Koulibaly and revealed that this is the third major instance of the central defender being subjected to vile racist abuse.

He wrote: "I am disappointed with what happened yesterday at San Siro".

The Napoli defender has been given a two-match man nonetheless, in a move that doesn't shine the most positive light on the FIGC (Italian Football Federation) who have failed once again to take a hard stance against racism.

He also said he believes Trump's remarks have been "blown out of proportion and unfairly politicized", according to BuzzFeed . He later revealed how "we are already building and renovating many miles" of his planned border wall.
