Milan, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 14th Feb, 2020 ) :Cagliari have banned three of their supporters for racially abusing opposition players during matches this season, the Serie A club announced on Friday.
The club did not specify for which incidents the fans had been banned, referring only to episodes in "recent months".
However it is likely they are referring to Romelu Lukaku, who in September became Italy's most high-profile victim when Cagliari fans aimed monkey chants at him before he scored the decisive penalty in a 2-1 away win.
Lukaku's own club Inter Milan also have a hardcore of far-right supporters who in an open letter insisted the abuse their star striker was subjected to was "not racist".
Elsewhere Hellas Verona fans have aimed monkey chants at Italy international Mario Balotelli this season, while in December Lukaku and Roma defender Chris Smalling were left bemused by a now infamous "Black Friday" front page headline from newspaper Corriere dello Sport about them meeting for the first time in Serie A.
