Inter Milan head coach Antonio Conte has criticised recent racism incidents in Italian football ahead of his side’s derby clash with AC.
Racist abuse was aimed at Romelu Lukakau during a recent match at Cagliari, and Conte has said this type of behaviour – Cagliari avoided punishment from Serie A as evidence was not deemed sufficient to punish – would not be tolerated in the Premier League.
“I had the luck and I think also the skill to work in England, and in England if somebody does that they end up in jail and they throw away the keys, they can’t set foot inside a stadium anymore,” said Conte.
“People here go to the stadium to insult the players, the opponents, the club, the colours. People should support their club, that would be nice. People supporting their team, it would be good for the children coming to the stadium.”
