A judge says that he needs more proof before deciding if Cagliari should be punished for racist chants aimed on Sunday at the Romelu Lukaku of Inter Milan.
Even the on-loan Manchester United striker was subjected to monkey chants from the audience.
In his weekly reports, Serie A’s disciplinary judge Gerardo Mastrandrea didn’t use the phrase”racist” and referred only to”chants which were the subject of news articles and TV reports”.
Cagliari have vowed to identify and prohibit the”ignorant” people guilty of”shameful actions”.
“Full solidarity into Romelu Lukaku as well as more profound commitment toward annihilating among the worst plagues that affects football and our world generally,” Cagliari stated.
“Cagliari Football is asking every person to help you win a conflict which involves everyone. No one excluded.”
Following the game on Sunday, Lukaku shared his own views on social media, stating soccer was”going backwards” on the dilemma of racism.
As was Blaise Matuidi the year before after he played against Cagliari previous year everton forward Moise Kean was subject to racist abuse.
The Italian team did not sanction Cagliari for incident, nor did they perform if Sulley Muntari was abused by exactly the same team’s supporters in 2017.
