TWO STILLS - FORENSIC INVESTIGATORS SEARCHING NEAR THE SCENE WHERE AN INTER MILAN FAN WAS KILLED AFTER BEING STRUCK BY A VEHICLE BEFORE THE MATCH STORY: Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri on Friday (December 28) expressed his support for Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly after the Senegalese player was racially abused during a match at Inter Milan.
Sections of the Inter fans made animal noises and racist chants at the defender during the game on Wednesday, after an Inter fan was killed when he was hit by a car during a violent clash near the San Siro stadium before kick-off, with four Napoli fans also reportedly stabbed in the violence.
Inter have been ordered to play their next two home games behind closed doors because of the incident involving Koulibaly.
Describing Koulibaly as a 'wonderful man', Sarri said there was a problem with racism in Italian soccer and more needed to be done to counter it.
Before moving to the London club Sarri, was Koulibaly's coach at Napoli.
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 for a foul on Matteo Politano.
Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti said some fans made animal noises throughout the entire game.
Inter Milan coach Luciano Spalletti said on Friday it was time to say "Enough" to racism and hatred in soccer.
