Ancelotti: “We Asked For Play To Be Suspended Three Times Against Inter Due To Racial Abuse”

Napoli Carlo Ancelotti has threatened that he and his Napoli team will simply walk off the pitch the next time racial abuse is directed at one of their players.

During his side’s 1-0 loss to Inter last night there were a series of audible racial jeers towards Napoli central defender Kalidou Koulibaly that persisted despite several stadium announcements threatening the postponement of the game if they were to continue.

“There was a strange atmosphere, as we asked three times for play to be suspended, they had announcements with the speaker three times. Koulibaly was certainly irritable. Usually, he is very calm and professional, but he was subjected to monkey noises throughout the game,” Ancelotti told Sky Sport Italia.

“We asked three times for some action to be taken, but the match continued. We keep being told play can be halted, but when? After four or five announcements? Maybe we have to take matters into our own hands next time and stop play ourselves. They will probably make us forfeit the game if we walk off, but we are prepared to do it.”
