They vowed to prevent the person responsible from ever attending a Roma match again. They also confirmed they reported the user to the police and Instagram.

The fans gave plenty of appreciation to the club’s tweet on social media.

This act came after anti-discriminatory body Fare said, Italian football authorities and their disciplinary systems to combat racism were not fit for purpose.

Fare executive director Piara Powar added “the rot is deep” and “no one is taking the issue seriously.” But Serie A insisted it was “seriously and constantly engaged in activities against racism.”
