Kalidou Koulibaly thanked Napoli fans for “an unforgettable moment” as they showed solidarity after he was racially abused.
Their game with Lazio had to be stopped for a few minutes midweek when Lazio supporters repeatedly aimed racist chants at the defender.
The Napoli crowd reacted ahead of today’s 1-0 win over Carpi by holding up pictures of Koulibaly’s face all over the stadium.
“It was an unforgettable moment for me!” wrote the French-Senegalese defender on Twitter and Instagram.
“Thank you to all the fans who made the San Paolo beautiful once again with this memorable initiative for me for the whole world.
“This victory is even more yours!”
