Serie A side Cagliari will face no punishment for their fans’ racist abuse of Juventus youngster Moise Kean last month.
The decision was announced by the league’s office on Tuesday, accompanied by a statement which read in part:
“It emerged the chants in question, although certainly reprehensible, had an objectively limited relevance to race.”
In other words, they were only a little racist; they weren’t racist enough.
The chants were present throughout the entirety of Juve’s 2-0 victory and only grew more intense after Kean scored his side’s second goal and celebrated defiantly, unwilling to be intimidated or silenced.
