Former Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure has said Leonardo Bonucci and Massimiliano Allegri are “a disgrace” for blasting Moise Kean’s celebration right in front of the racist Cagliari fans.
Moise Kean celebrated his 85th-minute goal in the match by positioning himself in front of the Cagliari supporters with his arms out, after being faced with several monkey chants throughout the game.
He was faulted by teammate Bonucci and manager Allegri at the end of the game, but speaking recently, Toure said “For me it’s a disgrace. You can’t do that.
“It was unbelievable. A teammate, a manager saying: ‘You shouldn’t have done that’ to one of your own players.
“I think it’s the worst scenario you can have in football. Your teammate attacking you, saying things like that, is just unbelievable. I can’t imagine how hurt he was when he saw that.”
When it was confirmed that Italian FA representatives were at the stadium, Toure continued: “I want to see what the Italian FA is going to do about that. It’s really important because this is what we’re fighting for. I want to see what the response is.”
“Yes definitely. When this kind of thing happens we need to send a message, not only to the fans but the people at the top as well.
“Something has to be done, because we’re tired of always coming back to this same problem. As long as those people in the stands, the people in government and at the top don’t decide anything, it’s still going to happen. What are we going to do? Continue to come here and talk, and talk, with nothing being done?
“I hope something’s going to be done properly as soon as possible.”
