Former footballer Clinton Morrison doesn’t understand why the Italian Lega Serie A didn’t punish Cagliari fans for their racist abuse of Romelu Lukaku.
During the Cagliari-Internazionale Milan match, Nerazzurri player Romelu Lukaku was the receiver of racist abuse.
And it was announced that the Italian Lega Serie A will not punish the Cagliari fans, something former footballer Clinton Morrison found “disgraceful.”
“How can you get fined €5000 for throwing plastic bottles on the pitch, but get cleared of racial abusing Romelu Lukaku? I don’t get it,” he told talkSPORT.
“It’s embarrassing, the Italian authorities are totally embarrassing. It’s a disgrace.”
He explained how he fell about it: “This boils my blood. I only saw this news a few minutes ago and I was not prepared for it.”
“It’s the biggest disrespect I’ve seen in football at the moment. I’m really upset about it,” he commented.
“I feel offended myself, personally!”
“And yes I do feel offended for Romelu Lukaku, and for every black player out there getting racially abused in Italy, I am. It’s a disgrace. More has to be done,” he commented.
“I’d walk off the pitch if it happened to me. I’d tell the manager to take me off, I wouldn’t play in that country.”
“It’s a disgrace! Embarrassing!"
“If I was Lukaku, I’d massively think about staying in Italy.”
“Most black players should think twice about going over to Italy.”@MorrisonClinton says Inter Milan fans defending Cagliari fans should make Lukaku consider his future at the club. pic.twitter.com/iYK1GL7oDf
