Koulibaly responds to alleged racist chanting in Milan
Having allegedly been targeted by racist chants on Wednesday, Kalidou Koulibaly has issued a response.
Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly hit back at fans who allegedly subjected him to racist abuse during his side's clash against Inter at San Siro on Wednesday.
Koulibaly staying proud
The Nerazzurri claimed a 1-0 Serie A win over Carlo Ancelotti's side thanks to a last-gasp goal from Lautaro Martinez.
After the match, Ancelotti said they requested the match be suspended three times due to fans directing offensive chants at Koulibaly.
Ancelotti claimed there were three separate warnings issued in the stadium but that the abuse continued regardless.
On Twitter, Koulibaly, who was sent off in the closing stages, told his followers that he is "proud" of his heritage and of being part of Napoli's footballing culture.
"I'm sorry for the defeat and above all for having left my brothers!" he wrote.
Mi dispiace la sconfitta e sopratutto avere lasciato i miei fratelli!— Koulibaly Kalidou (@kkoulibaly26) December 26, 2018
Però sono orgoglioso del colore della mia pelle. Di essere francese, senegalese, napoletano: uomo.
"But I'm proud of the colour of my skin. Of being French, Senegalese, Neapolitan: man."
