Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti found that during a match against Inter, they asked him three times to suspend the match because of the constant racist screams of local fans against defender Kalidou Kulibali, who was then sent.
"Three times we asked for suspension of the match, and there were three announcements, but the match continued," Ancelotti told Sky.
On several occasions, Coulibaly – Senegalese born in France – was a victim of screams from Inter fans who mimicked the monkey's devouring to attack him.
"The player was nervous, his mood was not the best. He is a very accurate player and is very professional. It's not like him, but he cried all the time ", explained Ancelotti about the expulsion of Napoli's defender.
Although the stadium's voice prompted fans to end up with a racist scream three times, party judge Paolo Silvio Mázzoleni decided not to interrupt the game.
Coulibaly was sent with a remaining 15 minutes for a double yellow card.
His first warning was for the violation of Matteo Politano, and the latter for applauding the judge.
Already at the end of the match came the goal of Argentine Lautaro Martinez for the triumph of 1-0 to Inter in one of the matches of the 8th round of Serie A.
"This looks like an excuse, but the player was upset, nervous, this is not good for us or for Italian football, there is a solution. You must interrupt the game. You just need to know how many ads. And if you do not know, then the next time we will be those who will stop it, "said former Real Madrid coach and Bayern Munich.
After the match, Napoli's defender was injured by the defeat and complained of his reaction, although he inflated his chest against racist acts. "I am proud of the quality of my skin, being French, Senegalese, Neapolitan: man."
It is not the first time that a case of this type happens. In April 2017, the extreme case was experienced when a Ghanaian player Sulei Muntari of Pescara decided to leave the middle match for Serie A against Cagliari after hearing racist songs from the tribune of the rival team. The referee, who did not hear the attack on the rostrum, warned the player for his angry appeal.
Muntari thinks he has once completed a meeting that was a boy who started racist insults against the player at age 32, and tried to give him an example to give him a shirt. But in the second phase, the songs continued. And although the player approached the rostrum to ask them to stop, the answer was negative.
Ghana says that what jeopted most was the attitude of the judge who, according to his version of events, reproached him "raising his voice" and telling him not to communicate with the public.
Violence is also out
Napoli's four fans were stabbed near Giuseppe Meazza in a pre-match against Inter in a draw between fans, according to the Italian newspaper La Repubblica.
One of the four injured had to be hospitalized: he is a 43-year-old man who has suffered a wound in the stomach, although his life is not in danger.
The remaining three suffered minor obstacles and, after being treated by the medical staff in the area, they were able to enter the stadium and watch the game.
