Milan – European football governing body UEFA said on Friday
that the exact anti-Sassimist protocol was not followed during the Italian one
League play between Inter and Napoli in the middle of the evening because of repeated abuse of
Senegalese defender Calidus Culibali.
Napoli was born in Culibali, born in France
and racist singers of San Siro, before being sent sarcastically
applauding Judge Paolo Mazzoli.
Three sound announcements were made over the loudspeaker who tired
fans to stop the songs, but they continued.
According to the UEFA protocol, the match was supposed to be
suspended then, instead of the game was allowed to continue.
In a joint statement UEFA and the Football Association FIFPro said
they "were very concerned by this unacceptable racist incident and by what
appears on the surface to be a failure to respect the widely accepted
anti-racism protocol in three steps.
"The culberries were the subject of racist singing and, besides,
announcements made by the speaker of the stadium, the songs have not stopped. On top of that,
it seems that Napoli's coach has already informed the referee several
times of racist chants ".
"Both organizations are of the opinion that they are racist
a song to Coulibaly, who had to leave the field after receiving a second
yellow card, are unacceptable and have no place in football.
"FIFPro and UEFA support Italian football
authorities for any additional measures that will be taken to cope with racism
where FIFPro and UEFA have a policy of zero tolerance. "
Both organizations welcome that Inter will have to
plays two home Serie A matches behind closed doors and another game with their
North Stand closed.
Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti said after the match his players
next time he will leave the field.
But the head of the Italian Football Federation, Gabriele Gravina
insisted that Judge Mazkoloni correctly justified in the game that Inter won 1-0
thanks to a later goal when Napoli dropped to nine men.
"Mazzolens perfectly enforced the rules," Gravina said
told Sky Sport Italy after the match.
"If the players leave the pitch, then they will break it
rules, followed by a negative result for their team.
"Let's not forget that there are rules that need to be
to improve. If not then it will be like the Wild West. "
