Lazio fans racially abuse Bakayoko

A shocking clip has emerged of Lazio fans racially abusing Milan midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Milan News and several other outlets have circulated a video of Lazio supporters chanting about Bakayoko in a discriminatory manner during their 2-0 win against Udinese on Monday.

“This banana is for Bakayoko,” they can clearly be heard singing.

It is seen as a response to the Frenchman parading Francesco Acerbi’s shirt like a trophy with Franck Kessie at the end of the Aquile’s 1-0 defeat to Milan last weekend.

The FIGC, meanwhile, has been criticised for not coming down hard enough on racial abuse after cases involving the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly and Moise Kean this season.

Bakayoko and Kessie, on the other hand, could yet be punished for their roles in the incident at San Siro.
