Ghana international Kwadwo Asamoah has admitted that he is worried about the growing racism in Italy.
Several players of colour including that of teammate Romelu Lukaku have been at the centre of racial slurs from the Italian fans.
On Sunday, the game between Atlanta and Fiorentina was temporarily suspended after Dalbert Henrique was racially abused by fans of the home side.
"It often happens, it bothers me. I'm focused on playing and not listening, but some can't. He's working a lot on this.
"We can do what other countries do to combat racism, it would improve Italian football," Asamoah told Sky Sports.
"We hope that these unpleasant episodes may diminish over time until they disappear," the Ghana international said.
"It is unacceptable that in 2019 distinctions are made only for the different colour of the skin. And do not talk about teasing or how to make the opponent nervous, because it would be like endorsing an uncivil behaviour that has no reason to be."
