Italian Football Association president Gabriele Gavina says that the suspension of Serie A is something he will consider after the serious events of the match between Inter and Napoli on Wednesday.

The Inter Milan fan died, and Napoli fans were stabbed before the Serie A match between the Italian sides and accusations of racist singing in San Siro.

The 35-year-old supporter was transferred to an emergency hospital after being hit by a van, but later died, while in a separate incident, four Naples fans were stabbed about an hour before the match, while fans from both sides clashed.

One of Napoli's fans had to fight for the wounds of the abdomen and two supporters of Inter were arrested in connection with the attack.

Talking about Il Messaggero Journal, said Gravina: "I do not know, the news is still fresh, it's a reflection of what needs to be done. Now we have to think for a moment and coordinate: it's a public order problem and how should it be managed, we will play or not. "

"I'm worried about this surreal climate, I'm not a psychologist, but some players were super nervous, it's all obvious in San Siro. Now I'm thinking, because what happened outside is too serious.

"What happened is very bad, on the field I saw players who were too nervous. The referee will write what happened if he made some mistakes and will be evaluated."

The atmosphere during the match was hostile, and Napoli's manager, Carlo Ancelotti, demanded the game be suspended for allegedly racist singing.

Ancelotti was disturbed by the singing that was directed at Senegalese international Calidou Culibali, who was sent to Napoli by 1-0 in Inter.

He said after the match: "There was an unusual atmosphere, we asked for a suspension of the competition and three times made a PA announcement.

"The player's nerves (Calidus Culibali) were distressed, he was nervous.

"Coulibaly always behaved well and was a professional, and often did not leave. But the singing lasted for the entire game.

"We asked three times to do something, but it simply proceeded. The solution? The match can be stopped, but they should have an idea when.

"After four announcements? Three? Four?" Players were upset, nervous and this is not good for Italian football and a game with a mentality that is not calm, it's inevitable. "
