AC Milan have officially lodged a complaint regarding the racist chants heard from the Lazio away end on Sunday.
As reported by Italian media outlet LazioNews24 last night, the Rossoneri have officially decided to lodge the complaint with the FIGC Federal Prosecutor’s Office over the racist chants heard coming from the Biancocelesti away end of the San Siro during Sunday’s Serie A clash, aimed at Tiemoue Bakayoko.
AC Milan are seeking clarity on the situation, which was widely reported following the game and saw Bakayoko reply himself on social media.
Below is AC Milan’s official statement:
AC Milan communicates that it has decided to present a complaint to the Federal Prosecutor’s Office, so that clarity is provided on the chants coming from the visiting fans’ sector during Milan-Lazio.
Bakayoko was reportedly subject to racist abuse throughout the evening, both before the match had started and when he was substituted on the pitch in the 61st minute.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time that the French midfielder has been subject to racist abuse by Lazio fans, with the previous occasion taking place in April 2019.
The investigation will begin shortly and developments are expected in the coming days and weeks.
