The Italian FA has began an investigation into the racist chants against Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen, by AS Roma fans in their Serie A goalless draw on Sunday.
The fiery clash saw the coaches of both teams sent off – Jose Mourinho during the match and Luciano Spalletti after the match after he applauded the referee.
According to reports in Italy, fans targeted racist chants towards the Nigeria international, who was bullish during the entire duration of the match, twice hitting the bar and having a goal disallowed for offside in the 88th minute.
In a ruling by the FIGC on Monday, Roma were fined €10,000 for their fans making ‘territorial discrimination’ chants against the city of Naples.
Osimhen, along with teammates Kalidou Koulibaly and André-Frank Anguissa were earlier this month racially abused by a Fiorentina fan after Napoli’s 2-1 win at the Artemio Franchi Stadium.
