MN: Investigations begin to identify Juventus fans responsible for racially abusing Maignan

By Oliver Fisher -

Investigations are underway to find the culprits that racially abused Mike Maignan during the warm-ups ahead of Juventus versus Milan on Sunday.

There was a very sour incident during the warm-ups of Juventus vs. Milan on Sunday night as Mike Maignan was subject to some appalling abuse, which of course comes after racist chants were aimed at Tiemoue Bakyoko at San Siro in the match between Milan and Lazio from away fans.

A video emerged showing a Juventus fan hurling a barrage of racial abuse at Maignan, using terms such as ‘negro’ and ‘monkey’ within earshot of the French goalkeeper. It understandably provoked an angry and disgusted response on social media.

According to what is being reported by MilanNews, Milan got in touch with Juventus regarding the deplorable racist insults aimed at Mike Maignan during the pre-match warm-ups, and the Bianconeri had already started investigation procedures to identify those responsible.
