Napoli could potentially face disciplinary action in response to alleged racist chants aimed at Inter striker Romelu Lukaku by Napoli fans during yesterday evening’s Serie A clash.
This according to Italian news service ANSA, who quote a report by Serie A’s Sporting Justice judge who could close down sections of Napoli’s stadium during their Serie A clash with Juventus over the racial abuse.
During Inter’s Serie A clash with Napoli yesterday evening, racist chants were allegedly directed towards Nerazzurri striker Romelu Lukaku by Partenopei fans.
The fans in question were reportedly seated in the “Terzo Anello Blu” stand at the San Siro, a section reserves for the away fans.
Should the investigation into the alleged chants by the authorities verify that the chants were uttered and identify which group of fans were responsible, Napoli could face disciplinary action.
The action in question would be to close down certain stands at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona during the club’s next home fixture.
The Partenopei’s next match at home is against Juventus the weekend after next, as their next Serie A match is away to Sampdoria this weekend, so the clash with the Bianconeri would be the match affected by any disciplinary measures.
