Ex-Man Utd duo caught up in racism storm after ‘Black Friday’ headline

Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport is embroiled in a racism storm after printing a “Black Friday” headline alongside photos of former Manchester United duo Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling.

The publication was previewing the upcoming game between Inter Milan and Roma where they used photos of the two former Manchester United players.

Lukaku was racially abused earlier this season when he was targetted with monkey chants by Cagliari fans.

The two ex-United stars will go up against each other in the Serie A clash.

Unsurprisingly, football fans and Serie A clubs have reacted with anger and disgust at the choice of words.

Only days ago all 20 clubs in Italy’s top flight wrote a letter to fans begging to eradicate racism.

Corriere dello Sport is yet to respond to criticism of the headline on its social media accounts.
