Rome, August 19 - Lazio fans made monkey chants
against Juventus players during their 4-0 loss to Juve in the
Italian Super Cup final Sunday even though they have blacks in
their own team, Juventus and France midfielder Paul Pogba said
Monday.
"They're ignorant. I was alone against 30,000. Those people
behave like that even though they have black players in their
team," Pogba told AFP.
"It's a complete lack of respect towards players wearing the
shirt they're rooting for, too.
"It's an unpleasant situation but I keep playing and stay
focused on my job," Pogba said.
Juve's Angelo Ogbonna, an Italy defender of Nigerian
descent, and Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah were the other Juve
players targeted.
Lazio's team included Angolan-born Belgian Under-21
international Luis Pedro Cavanda and Nigeria's Ogenyi Eddy
Onazi.
A soccer judge punished the incident by shutting the Lazio
hard-core fans' stand for their opening Serie A match against
Udinese on Sunday.
