Lukaku, angry at the booing of racism, returned with a red card… Controversial Italian Derby

In the ‘Italian Derby’, a big match between Juventus and Inter Milan, there was an incident where racial discrimination was poured out and a player was sent off for being angry.

Juventus and Inter, who played the first leg of the 2022-2023 Coppa Italia semifinals, drew 1-1 at the Allianz Stadium in Turin, Italy on the 5th (Korean time). On the 27th, the second round will determine the finalists.

The two teams, who had been fighting in vain, exchanged dramatic goals at the end of the match. In the 38th minute of the second half, Juventus’ cross flowed across the Inter gate, and Juan Cuadrado, famous as the ‘Inter Killer’, finished it off. Then, in extra time, Juventus defender Glaisson Bremer conceded a penalty kick for handball, which Lukaku kicked. 메이저사이트

The problem arose right after Lukaku’s goal. During the ceremony, Lukaku received a second yellow card and was sent off. It was seen as a crowd provocation by showing a gesture that seemed to be ‘be quiet’ to the home crowd behind the goal. Quadra, who pushed Lukaku away and argued, also received a warning. Even after the final whistle blew, Cuadrado continued to argue, and in the end, Handanovic and Cuadrado were summarily ejected at the same time. A total of 3 players will not be able to play in the next match.

Local media raised the possibility that racist booing was the beginning. Lukaku has already expressed his protest against racism in the Belgian national team with the same gesture. After the match, Inter coach Simone Inzaghi said, “I definitely heard the racist booing.” On the other hand, Juventus defender Danilo said it was a natural send-off, saying, “I provoked our home fans and I was just warned.”
