European football’s governing body will not open up an investigation into the racist abuse that Inter striker Romelu Lukaku suffer during the Nerazzurri’s match with Slavia Prague according to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport‘s online edition.
Following the match in the Czech capital Lukaku, who made significant as he scored once and set up the other two goals, told the media that he had once again been subjected to racist abuse.
This was the second time this season where the 26-year-old Belgian had been targetted having previously been racially abused by Cagliari fans.
The reason there will be no investigation into the abuse is because neither the UEFA delegate present at the Sinobo Stadium nor referee Szymon Marciniak heard the chants.
Lukaku has made 17 appearances across all competitions this season following his club record transfer arrival from Manchester United in the Summer. In just shy of 1400 minutes, he has scored 11 goals and provided two assists.
