The 19-year-old had already been insulted throughout the 2-0 Bianconeri victory at the Sardegna Arena on Tuesday evening.

When he scored at the 85th minute, he stood arms outstretched in front of the ultras behind the net, sparking even more furious and openly racist abuse from the stands.

That prompted even louder and far clearer racist abuse, which before that had been from only a handful of fans.
