Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has hit out at supporters who allegedly racially abused Napoli defender, Kalidou Koulibaly, during his side’s Serie A clash with Inter Milan on Wednesday.
Napoli boss, Carlo Ancelotti, asked the officials to suspend the game during the match, as he heard ‘monkey chants’ aimed at Koulibaly.
The Senegal defender was sent off for two bookable offences, after he made a rash challenge and then sarcastically applauded the referee.
Koulibaly was clearly affected by the taunts towards him and Ronaldo says society needs “education and respect” to ensure there’s not a repeat of the incident.
“In the world and in football I always want education and respect.
“No to racism and any offense and discrimination!!!” Ronaldo wrote on Instagram.
