Romelu Lukaku was subjected to monkey chants from the crowd during Inter Milan’s 2-1 victory at Cagliari in the Serie A on Sunday night.
According to Sky Sports, the chants could be heard before and after the striker scored a penalty, to secure Inter the win in the 72nd minute, before he looked towards the Cagliari supporters.
The 26-year-old sent goalkeeper Robin Olsen the wrong way, with 20 minutes remaining to mark his second goal in two competitive games for his new club.
Antonio Conte, Inter boss, said after the game: “I really didn’t hear anything from the bench. However, it is true that in general in Italy more education is needed.
“I have also heard [Carlo] Ancelotti complain about the constant insults received on certain pitches. When you are abroad there is more respect, the fans think only of supporting their team.”
Former Juventus striker, Moise Kean, as well as midfielder, Blaise Matuidi, were subjected to racist chanting from same supporters during a league clash last April.
