Fifa’s president Gianni Infantino, has said Italian football should apply English-style punishments to supporters guilty of racism
Sunday’s game between Atalanta and Fiorentina was halted after reports of racist chanting by some fans
Fiorentina’s Brazilian wing-back Dalbert told the referee he had been the target of racist chanting and the Serie A match, which finished 2-2, was temporarily suspended but later an announcement was read out over the public address system and the game continued.
Meanwhile, Infantino said in England, fans who engage in racist behaviour face stadium bans. And Italy can’t have racism in their society or football and that they should improve.
