The French midfielder has explained via Facebook that he was the subject of racial abuse during the Bianconeri's 1-0 win on Saturday night.

This is not the first time Matuidi has been affected by racism since joining Juve at the beginning of this season either – Verona were fined €20 000 (R297 000) and handed a partial stadium ban after their supporters sang racist chants towards the midfielder earlier this campaign.

"Today (Saturday), I experienced racism during the match," Matuidi wrote on Facebook.

"Weak people try to intimidate with hate. I am not a hater and can only be sorry for those who set bad examples.

"Football is a way to spread equality, passion and inspiration, and this is what I am here for. Peace."

Italian teams are to blame coz they don't talk to their fans about racism. I'm already feeling sorry for African teams at the World Cup this year coz Russia on their side are far worse
