Inter Milan defender Francesco Acerbi is back in training after being question in an investigation regarding alleged racial abuse.

This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews, Sky report that Acerbi has already spoken with the prosecutor investigating his alleged use of racially discriminatory language towards Napoli’s Juan Jesus.

The investigation into an incident during last weekend’s Serie A match between Inter and Napoli is now well underway.

The prosecutors’ office of the Italian FA has taken over the investigation since earlier this week.

It is prosecutors Giuseppe Chine who is heading up the investigation.

And a key part of Chine’s investigation has, naturally, been to speak to the two players principally involved.

This means that the prosecutor has spoken to both Napoli defender Jesus, and Acerbi.

And Sky confirm that Chine has already held a meeting with the Inter defender.

This took place via a video conference earlier today.

Sky report that the 36-year-old former Lazio and Sassuolo continued to stick by his story. He denied that he had used a racial slur during an argument with Jesus on the pitch.

Francesci Acerbi Back In Training After Being Questioned In Alleged Racism Investigation

Now, Sky report, Acerbi is back in training.

The 36-year-old is with the Inter squad.

Initially, Acerbi had been part of the Italian national team squad for the international break. Azzurri coach Luciano Spalletti had called the Inter defender up.

However, Acerbi left the Italy training camp at the start of the week.

This was the direct result of the ongoing fallout from the alleged incident during Sunday’s match.

Therefore, Acerbi is currently back in training with the Inter squad rather than with his national team.

And Chine’s investigation continues.

The Italian FA prosecutor will deliver a verdict next week on whether or not Acerbi is guilt of racial abuse.

Should the Inter defender be found guilty of using racially discriminatory language, then he could face a lengthy ban. The suspension would be for no less than ten days.
