That's how the ultras justify themselves too but guess what it never works because it's a silly excuse
It's not an excuse. Saying something racist on purpose and being a racist are two completely different things.

Reality is there two types of racist the one who live by it and where it’s a fundamental part of their identity, world view etc (like Neo-Nazi) and the other who views themselves as not being racist but share and have a core racists view but on a much more subconscious level, the latter is by far the majority and those making racist remarks often are subconsciously racist
Yeah, maybe, but I meant something else. If Acerbi was angry to JJ or if he simply wanted to provoke him to do something stupid, he could say something racist. This doesn't mean that he is a racist.
Of course I don't know Acerbi in person, so it's possible that he is a racist. My suggestion is that he made it in purpose. He is not the gentleman type of defender, and always tires to push, hold or pull his opponent when it is possible, and the he plays innocent a front of the referee. That is the reason that I think it was intended provocation.

Don't have one.

Yeah, he probably said something racist in the heat of the moment or trying to provoke juan. Doubt he is an actual racist. But either way he needs to go if this thing turns out to be true, not only because of the inappropriate nature of it and other black players we have but also because of an overall image of the club, brothers of the world mantra we pushed so hard etc...

i don't disagree with u, but im sure lots of people would have a completely different opinion if this was Lautaro, or someone thats worth a lot.

anyway, lets just wait and see. No reason to even discuss this, when we know pretty much nothing yet.

I have always questioned his IQ when he makes the idiotic forward runs, does he thibk he is a Bastoni? Doesnt realize he is that slow?

It has always been strange to me when players insult other players because of their skin considering the fact that they certainly has teammates of the same colour.

I doubt that JJ would lie about such a situation and most probably Acerbi is guilty.

Next time Acerbi should threaten someone with cutting their throat... Thats fine in Serie A.
Its not fine and Juric was banned for it. He got 2 games and likely the only reason his sentence wasn't harsher was his public apology.

Also not the first time this season acerbi has had non football issues. There was the reaction to the Roma fans previously.

I’m not here to discuss semantics of whether he said it or he said it and didn’t mean it. If he fucking said it, then he should motherfuck right off.

JJ should be called BP. Big pussy, if you ask me. Everyone is so sensitive today. If someone calls me, in the heat of the game, white trash, so fucking what.

You reap what you sow. That's the gamble with players like that and this club knows that. We already have a known hothead that collect stupid yellows for dissent (Barella), Acerbi is also a known moron who we learned to like because he managed to come back from cancer (and because he played well for us).

I don't want Inter to be known for Scandals and morons. That's a trait for Juve players. If there is a way we can terminate his contract for that at the end of the season, do it. It's time for a new CB anyway. De Vrij can be the bench option.

Atleast fucking refs are again against us, I started being very nervous cause they mostly favored us this season.

Thuram fishing for nonexistant penalties is not "refs are against us again"

Or do you mean something else?

Shall we, oh, I dunno', try with that little old thing known as presumption of innocence before we make Acerbi out to be a vile racist who deserves termination and scorn forver because of an accusation?
Holy shit this place sometimes...


Just arrived at Milano Centrale Station, after leaving the Coverciano retreat, Inter defender Francesco Acerbi, amidst the whirlwind due to the chaos erupted regarding alleged racist remarks directed at Juan Jesus, yesterday's opponent in the match against Napoli, was intercepted by some journalists present at Centrale Station upon his arrival.

"I don't want to talk," he promptly replied before letting himself go a little.

Are you upset, Francesco?
"No, it's fine."

What did your teammates say?
"Nothing much."

Shall we say a strong 'no' to racism?
"That's an understatement, but yes."

Did you appreciate Juan Jesus' attitude?
"Guys, I haven't said any racist remarks, that's for sure. I'm very calm about this."

Did you say what was reported? Do you know you could face a long suspension?
"No."

Will you discuss with the team and the club today?
"We'll see now."

Did you get a chance to talk to Juan Jesus?
"No."

He said he defended his rights in the best way.
"I haven't heard from him. I can certainly say that no racist words came from my mouth."

Then why did you apologize? At least according to what Juan Jesus said...
"I think he misunderstood."

Did he misunderstand?
"I know I didn't say racist remarks. I've been playing football for twenty years, I know what I say."

What did Spalletti say to you?
"Our things, absolutely."

Many are asking for the truth. Will you speak out on social media?
"On social media, guys... I've already told you what I'll say and what I said."

Do you confirm you didn't say racist remarks?
"For sure."

Were you pleased with what he said in the post-match?
"But if I didn't say any racist remarks...".

So, if he made it up... Why would he? Didn't you insult each other?
"No."

What happened in the end?
"Nothing."

Don't you think the issue deserves a calm discussion?
"I hope the fight against racism continues worldwide."

But certain things can happen on the field.
"Many, many, many things happen on the field, it's normal while playing football that certain things can be said. But when the final whistle blows, we shake hands and everything goes back to normal."

Are you sorry for leaving the National team retreat?
"Yes, but it had to be this way."

Why?
"Because it's okay like this."

Will you talk to the Inter executives?
"No, I'll talk to my daughter."

Did you talk to any teammates?
"Nothing."
