Franck Kessie was the victim of some racial abuse during AC Milan’s 2-1 win over Roma at the Stadio Olimpico tonight, a report has claimed.
In the first half Zlatan Ibrahimovic was booked by referee Fabio Maresca after he responded to abuse from Roma fans following his goal at the Stadio Olimpico. The fans were chanting “Sei uno zingaro” at Ibrahimovic, which means “You are a gypsy”.
After he scored his free-kick to make it 1-0, the Swede told the fans to sing louder and the referee booked him for provocation, but it appears it wasn’t the only incident where Roma fans disgraced themselves.
According to MilanNews, there were racist jeers against Kessie by some Roma fans, who abused the player after he got booked in the second half for a foul. The card was produced, and then the Ivorian was showered with abuse. We hope to hear of action being taken.
