    I agree, but not a tall surprised.
    The plot was lost on this subject in Italy 20 years ago.

    Sadly unsurprised to discover racism is still so normalised in Italy.

    Disgusting.
    I'd say the celebration was very mature for a teenager who has been monkey chanted during the match.
    Bonucci can go and fudge himself.
    If we play Juve anytime soon (hopefully April) and Bonucci is within my range, I will verbally let him know my thoughts on the matter...

    I saw the celebration last night and it’s not like he really wound up the crowd either, he just sort of stood in front of them.

    It’s mind boggling that the people who should be condemning this most aren’t 400% behind him. I know Italy has a poor record in this area but still.

    The backlash that has followed the controversial coverage has led the director of Sky Sport Italy, Federico Ferri, to pen a rare reply to the critics.

    In a blog post published on Thursday, Ferri said that presenters in the studio "could not hear" the racist chants that might have seemed loud from the pitch, and as such dismissed Kean's gesture as an overreaction.

    Ferri also commented that although "racist abuse must be condemned whether it comes from one person or 1,000 people", Kean's celebration "just isn't the best way of celebrating a goal, and it'd be best to… go back to sharing the joy with the rest of the team".

    People saying we have huge problems here are now seeing they pale to those overseas.

    Recent responses of "it didnt happen" show that

    We have issues, are they huge? I think you have to see where its come from to where we are now and from that side I would say its not "huge" Is there work to be done? Yes there is but then the establishment and Kick it Out are as much to blame than fans when they allow racist players to survive in the English game without any real punishment, that set a terrible example.

    I have been to 100s of games in the UK and I have heard racism once in 15 years, in Prem and non league, I am either lucky or hard of hearing.

    However two loons at Chelsea shouting which is condemned by the entire footballing community is small.

    Europe has a HUGE problem when its managers, players and governing bodies deny there is an obvious problem, what you see in Italy and France is incredible, played booked for protesting against racism is like nothing I have seen.

    The shock isn’t that it’s there, it’s thats it normalised and so little is being done to stop it.
