The ugly side of Italian football resurfaced again. Unsurprisingly, the target once again was Mario Balotelli subjected to racist abuse by a section of Inter fans as he faced his former club for the first time since his return in January. Serie A authorities are considering sanctions against the side and its fans.
He's already been called a house n*gger by his boss's son, subjected to racist songs by Inter fans during a match against Chievo for which the club was fined, and yesterday in the Milan derby, fans waved inflatable bananas and made monkey sounds. Just ugly and deplorable behaviour.
