Inter’s new signing, Romelu Lukaku, is making strides on the pitch this season as Nerazzuri are at the top of Serie A thanks to his efforts.

However, a controversial headline came out announcing the Inter – Roma duel tomorrow night.

The headline said “Black Friday” with an image of Lukaku and Chris Smalling.

Lukaku was having none of it, and he publicly called out Corriere dello Sport for publishing such a controversial headline.

Both AS Roma and AC Milan took the player’s side, banning the newspapers immediately for good.

Hopefully, the fight against racism in Italy makes progress sooner rather than later.
