Many Italians don't understand racism

Football fans are a mere microcosm of society and what Mario Balotelli faced in Verona reflected a larger issue, writes Susy Campanale.

Mario Balotelli was subjected to racist abuse at the Stadio Bentegodi. This, somehow, is still up for debate in Italy. It is not about Italian football at this point, nor is it helpful to note all the recent incidents of racism in the Premier League, Ligue 1 and most blatantly in Bulgaria.

D'Aversa: 'Parma not happy with result'

Parma boss Roberto D'Aversa was "satisfied with the performance against Fiorentina, less so with the result."

The Gialloblu held the home side to a 1-1 draw, but D'Aversa believes they could've won had two offside calls not gone against Gervinho.

Montella admires Fiorentina fightback

Vincenzo Montella was reassured by the Fiorentina fightback to hold Parma 1-1. “We saw a different team after the break.”

Gaetano Castrovilli’s diving header cancelled out the Gervinho counter-attack at the Stadio Franchi.

“We struggled and I didn’t like the attitude in the first half, as we lacked determination both on the ball and off it. We conceded when losing possession in midfield,” Montella told Sky Sport Italia.
