  • Napoli's Fabian Ruiz right misses a scoring chance during a Serie A soccer match between Inter Milan and Napoli at the San Siro stadium in Milan Italy Wednesday Dec. 26 2018

However, the match was marred by racist chants from the Inter Milan support directed towards the Senegalese defender, who has since received plenty of support, even from Cristiano Ronaldo.

Milan's mayor Giuseppe Sala has backed Lega Serie A's decision to force Inter to play two league games behind closed doors following the alleged racist abuse of Kalidou Koulibaly.

The Senegal worldwide, who had monkey noises directed at him throughout the match, received two yellow cards in quick succession, the second for sarcastically applauding the referee after being shown the first.

"We asked three times to do something but it just went on".

Ancelotti claimed there were three separate warnings issued in the stadium but that the abuse continued regardless. Proud to be French, Senegalese, Neapolitan: "Man".

Milan police chief Marcello Cardona said Thursday that investigators believe the 35-year-old fan, Daniele Belardinelli, may have been fatally struck by a van or SUV during the clashes.

Death toll from Indonesian tsunami nears 400

Substitute Lautaro Martinez scored in stoppage time to give Inter Milan a 1-0 win over Napoli who had two players sent off in a stormy finish to their Serie A match on Wednesday.

"We asked three times for the match to be halted because of racist chants", Ancelotti said.

The combative, heavily-tattooed Belgian, who according to Italian media arrived late for training several times in the previous weeks, has not made the expected impact since his move from Roma in the summer, partly due to injury.

The Napoli coach pointed to Koulibaly's dismissal in the 80th minute as the game's turning point, suggesting the defender had been severely "shaken" by the abuse.

Accompanied with an image of Koulibaly with the words: "say no to racism" underneath, the Liverpool forward wrote: "I am bitter not to say bruised and dismayed by what you have experienced. No to racism and to any offence and discrimination". And this is not good for Italian football.

'If you get to a point where you won't stop a game, after repeated requests, it really means that you do not have the courage to impose what should be the rules of the sport'.
