A part of this Inter Milan ultras group’Curva Nord’ have insisted that the monkey chants directed at Romelu Lukaku by Cagliari fans were not intended to be racist.
Lukaku, who signed for Inter in Manchester United last month, he demanded immediate action from the soccer authorities after he had been mistreated during Sunday’s 2-1 win.
A group referred to as’L’Urlo Della Nord’ say Lukaku”must know” that – from Italy – lovers have”ways only to help our teams and also to attempt to make opponents nervous” – and they do not think them to be displaced.
In an overview on Facebook, the group said:”Hi Romelu, we’re writing you on behalf of Curva Nord, yes the guys who welcomed you in the arrival in Milan. We are very sorry you thought what occurred in Cagliari was still racist.
“You’ve got to know that Italy isn’t like many other north European countries where racism is a true issue. It’s not like that although we understand that it could have appeared shameful for you.
“In Italy we utilize some”ways” just to”help our crews” and to attempt to make our opponents stressed, maybe not for racism but also to jumble them up.
“We’re a multi-ethnic fans organisation and we’ve consistently welcomed players from anywhere. But, we have consistently used that’way’ previously with other teams’ players and we will later on.
“We aren’t racist and so aren’t the Cagliari fans.”
The statement went on to argue that fans act in stadiums, and that the struggle against racism shouldn’t begin in football stadiums however in universities than in the world.
On Tuesday, the league’s disciplinary judge says he had more proof before making a decision if Cagliari should be penalized for the chants, that judge Gerardo Mastrandrea didn’t refer to “racist” in his weekly report.
Lukaku converted the winning penalty from the game, then as they directed the monkey chants in 27, glared at home fans behind the goal of Inter.
Since was Blaise Matuidi the year earlier when he played for Juventus against Cagliari last season everton ahead Moise Kean was also subject to abuse.
