Italian commentator makes shocking racist remark about Lukaku
Sept. 16, 2019
Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku has come under attack from a guest commentator at TopCalcio24.
Luciano Passirani, a guest commentator on the show, said : “If they go one-on-one with you you’re dead, you fall to the ground. You’re alright if you have ten bananas to give him to eat, otherwise..
Fabio Ravezzani, the director of the station, went on air almost immediately after the comments were made and apologized before clarifying that Passirani would not be allowed on the network ever again.
Lukaku has been at the centre of a number of racist incidents, and was subjected to monkey chants during their 2-1 win over Cagliari earlier this month.
While appearing on the show, he said: ‘I don’t see in the Italian league a player like Lukaku in any team, not in AC Milan, Inter, Rome, Lazio.
Passirani did apologize on air afterwards but it still led to widespread condemnation from those who watched.
