Napoli asked for halt to Inter Milan match after racist chants

Milan mayor Giuseppe Sala has apologized to Napoli player Kalidou Koulibaly after he was racial insulted during their game against Inter Milan at San Siro on Boxing Day.

Inter will also have to play another game with their North Stand closed.

Koulibaly was also handed a two-match ban by Serie A's disciplinary tribunal after he was sent off in the 81st minute for sarcastically applauding the referee for booking him.

Ancelotti claimed the visitors asked three times for the game to be called off and suggested the Partenopei would "stop play ourselves" the next time an incident occurred. Proud to be French, Senegalese, Neapolitan: "a man".

Two arrests have been made and the police are seeking a third suspect as the fan, identified by police as 35-year-old Daniele Belardinelli, was killed after being hit by a van close to the San Siro on Wednesday night.

Asamoah, who missed the Nerazurri's away draw at Chievo on Saturday lasted the entire duration as the Milan side cut the gap between the and Napoli to five points.

He tweeted: "There's no place for racism in football".


Head coach Carlo Ancelotti said after Napoli's 1-0 loss that they tried to get the game suspended three times because of offensive chants.

"I always want education and respect in life and football", Ronaldo wrote on Instagram.

Koulibaly was sent off 10 minutes from the end of Napoli's 1-0 defeat at the San Siro, with substitute Lautaro Martinez scoring a stoppage-time victor for Inter.

"There should not be racism or any offence or discrimination!" Usually, he is very calm and professional, but he was subjected to monkey noises throughout the game. This is a test for the new leadership of the Italian FA (football federation).

Koulibaly's manager Carlo Ancelotti has declared that if any of his players had to suffer that level of abuse again during a match he will force his side off, even if it means forfeiting the result.

"I'm sorry about the defeat and especially to have let my brothers down".

"You can't die from going to the stadium to see a soccer match", Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said.
