Belgium and Inter Milan forward Romelu Lukaku says he thinks Serie A is taking action on racism – and he wants the FA to follow suit.
The former Manchester United striker was subjected to monkey chants from the crowd during Inter’s 2-1 win over Cagliari earlier this month.
He responded with an Instagram post, in which he called for action – adding that ‘instead of going forwards, we’re going backwards’.

Premier League players have also suffered racial abuse this season, with players including Marcus Rashford and Tammy Abraham targeted online after failing to convert penalties.
And speaking after a goalscoring performance in a 4-0 win for Belgium over Scotland on Monday, Lukaku reiterated his call for action from football’s ruling bodies.
