FIGC president Gabriele Gravina has reportedly opted against intervening in the alleged racial abuse case involving Francesco Acerbi.

Napoli defender Juan Jesus accused the Inter Milan veteran of aiming racial slurs towards him. The controversial incident ensued during the two clubs’ recent Serie A clash.

This instigated an investigation by the Italian Football Federation’s prosecution office.

However, sporting justice acquitted Acerbi due to the lack of evidence.

According to Article 102 of the Sporting Justice code, only the president of the football federation can still intervene in this case to alter the verdict.

Gravina had already exercised his right last season, asking to revoke the ban for former Inter striker Romelu Lukaku who received a red card for his reaction after being racially abused by a section of Juventus supporters.

That incident occurred during the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final.

Nevertheless, La Gazzetta dello Sport (via FcInterNews) envisions a different scenario this time.

As the source explains, Gravina blindly trusts the work of the investigators in the Acerbi case.

FIGC President Gabriele Gravina Won’t Intervene In Francesco Acerbi & Juan Jesus Case

Therefore, the FIGC chief won’t intervene in the matter, thus putting the case to bed, at least from a judicial point of view.

But sadly for Inter, the case had already attracted all sorts of negative vibes towards the club.

The Nerazzurri have been extremely cautious in handling the whole media storm that accompanied the investigation.

Hence, they will be looking to re-shift the squad’s focus towards the pitch, starting from his weekend’s clash against Empoli.

Inter will host the Tuscans at San Siro on Monday night.
