Breaking: Lukaku suffers ‘sick monkey’ racist abuse in Italy’s Serie A


Romelu Lukaku suffered sick racist monkey chants as he scored Inter Milan’s winning penalty.

The former Manchester United striker made it two goals in two games since joining the Serie A side in the 2-1 win over Cagliari.

But his 72nd-minute spot kick was totally overshadowed by the horrendous racist abuse directed at him in the run up.

After slotting the spot kick in to the bottom right corner of the goal, the 26-year-old striker did not celebrate.

Instead, he glared at the fans shouting vile taunts in his direction.

Lukaku stepped up to take the penalty after midfielder Stefano Sensi was downed inside the box by Fabio Pisacane.

His winner cancelled out Joao Pedro’s 50th-minute equaliser which came after Lautaro Martinez’s 25th-minute opener.

“Once again racist monkey chants as Lukaku goes to take a penalty.

“That’s one season removed from Moise Kean incident. Something has to be done about this.”

Lukaku’s former fellow Premier League star Kurt Zouma was subjected to horrendous racist abuse online yesterday after his late own goal gifted Sheffield United a point at the Bridge.

And it was against Cagliari earlier this year that current Everton striker Moise Kean was hit with racist chants.

Incredibly, his then Juventus team-mate Leonardo Bonucci claimed Kean was “50-50 to blame” for the ugly scenes.
