Serie A By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 04/04/2019

Former Juventus and Barcelona defender Lilian Thuram have blast Leonardo Bonucci for ‘disgracefully comment on Moise Kean over racial abuse.

The Italy international has since backtracked on the controversial comments he made after Old Lady 2-0 win over Cagliari on Tuesday night at Sardegna Arena but 1988 World Cup winner Thuram did not hold back in his criticism Bonucci while adding the Bianconeri should have walked off the field in protest.

Stars hit out Bonucci over racist abuse comment on Kean

The Frenchman told Le Parisien: "He says Moise looked for it and with that he said something that many people think: that blacks deserve what happens to them.

"Things haven’t progressed because of these people. To Moise I say that I’m proud of adversity, as all black people should be, in the face of people like Bonucci.

"The right question to ask Bonucci instead would be: what did Kean do to deserve so much contempt?

"Bonucci never said to the fans that they were wrong but rather Kean, who looked for it. It’s like when a woman is raped and someone talks about the way she was dressed.

"Bonucci isn’t stupid, but he has a certain idea of society and his intentions are just disgraceful.

"We must be clear about racism. Those who boo represent contempt for anyone, including children, who has Kean’s skin colour.

"Every time someone says a game will be suspended the next time it happens, it never does.

"I see the football authorities don’t care. If it had really been a problem, racism would have stopped.

"The team should’ve left the field and a solution would’ve been found.”
