Private initiative in protest at acquittal of Inter's Acerbi

ANSA English Desk



Napoli took the knee against racism before their Serie A match against Atalanta at the Maradona Stadium on Saturday.
    The private initiative came after the side on Tuesday blasted Inter's Italy defender Francesco Acerbi's acquittal of using a racist slur against their Brazil defender Juan Jesus for lack of evidence despite the Brazilian saying he had been called a negro.
    "We remain astonished. Napoli will no longer adhere to mere façade initiatives of football institutions against racism and discrimination, we will continue to do them on our own, as we have always done, with renewed conviction and determination", the Azzurri said in a statement on that occasion.
    Before Saturday's match Caserta-born actor and director Marco D'Amore took the microphone to tell fans: "Our eyes have seen too much, our ears have heard too much, but this is no longer the time for indifference and disregard; Naples make your voice heard without shame or fear, let's say all together 'no to racism'".
    Next to D'Amore stood Mohamed Seick Mane, one of Napoli's youth players.
    As the actor spoke the ads next to the field were replaced by the words 'No to racism' on a black background.
