The verdict in the investigation into an alleged racial abuse incident involving Inter Milan’s Francesco Acerbi could come tomorrow.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews. The Gazzetta report that the 36-year-old defender is anxiously awaiting the outcome.

Italian FA prosecutor Giusppe Chine has been investigating the incident involving Acerbi and Napoli’s Juan Jesus in a match before the international break for the past week.

Chine has spoken to both Acerbi, and Jesus, who the Inter defender allegedly racially abused.

The prosecutor has also reviewed all other available evidence.

Now it will be up to Chine to make a decision on whether or not to find Acerbi guilty of racial abuse.

The Inter defender has continued to insist that he did not use racially discriminatory language towards Jesus.

Napoli defender Jesus, on the other hand, has been absolutely vehement that Acerbi uttered a racial slur.

Verdict In Francesco Acerbi Alleged Racial Abuse Investigation Could Come By Tomorrow

It has always been clear that the verdict from Chine will come some time this week.

And according to the Gazzetta, the prosecutor is not far from wrapping up his investigation and making a decision.

The newspaper reports that Chine could even deliver the verdict as early as tomorrow.

Behind the scenes, the Gazzetta report that there is a lot of anxiety on Acerbi’s part.

The former Lazio and Sassuolo defender knows just how important the verdict in this investigation.

For one thing, if Chine does find Acerbi guilty of racially abusing Jesus, then the Italian international will face a ban of a minimum of ten matches.

That would see Acerbi miss the rest of the current season.

Moreover, it would be very difficult to see Acerbi staying at Inter beyond the end of the campaign if he is to be found guilty of racial abuse.

And it is the same story with the upcoming Euros. Acerbi’s participation in the tournament this summer would be off the table if Chine delivers a guilty verdict.

The Gazzetta report that, behind the scenes in private conversations, Acerbi continues to insist that he did not use a racial slur towards Napoli’s Jesus.
