Maignan had celebrated the victory after the final whistle with Tomori. “This Gamed Day of Series A was dedicated to the fight against racism, but there is still a long way to us, and we have to fight together,” Twittered Milan.

The Brazilian-Italian Cagliari striker Joao Pedro emphasized, however, he did not hear racist insults and defended the fans of the association. “This is a very sensitive matter, but I was in midfield at this time.
