Cagliari cleared of racist chants towards Romelu Lukaku

Serie A has cleared Cagliari of racist chanting towards Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku in a league match earlier this month.

Audible chants could be heard when former Manchester United striker Lukaku was about to take a penalty in a 2-1 victory at the Sardegna Arena.

According to a sports judge acting on behalf of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), there was not enough evidence for any sanctions however Cagliari was fined 5,000 euros for throwing plastic bottles on to the pitch at Parma last Sunday.

Report Admission

The report admitted that chants, shouts and whistles were directed at Lukaku by Cagliari fans, but they were not enough in "size and perception" to bring about any form of punishment against the club and its supporters.

This is the third time that the club has been investigated for alleged racist abuse in the last two years after cases involving Moise Kean, Italy forward now at Everton, and his then Juventus team-mate, France international Blaise Matuidi, but no action has been taken on each occasion.
