Raheem Sterling leads backlash against Leonardo Bonucci

Moise Kean responds to racist chants after scoring against Cagliari

Moise Kean responds to racist chants after scoring against Cagliari

England worldwide Sterling, who was racially abused in last month's Euro 2020 qualifier in Montenegro, took to Instagram to counter Bonucci's argument.

In another post-match interview, Allegri was more forceful in his condemnation of the Cagliari fans, branding those who abused Kean "idiots who do stupid things and ruin it for everyone else" while also claiming football authorities "don't really want to" tackle the issue.

Cagliari skipper Luca Ceppitelli went over to the fans behind the goal, appealing for the chants to stop, while France midfielder Blaise Matuidi appeared to gesture to manager Massimiliano Allegri he should take his players off.

Play resumed amid more booing and the referee blew the final whistle shortly afterwards.

Defender Leonardo Bonucci opened the scoring with a towering header from a corner in the 22nd minute and Kean, 19, turned in Rodrigo Bentancur's cross with five minutes left.

"Kean knows that when he scores a goal, he has to focus on celebrating with his teammate", Bonucci was quoted as saying by Football Italia. "He knows he could've done something differently too", Bonucci told Sky Sports Italia.

"There were racist jeers after the goal, Blaise heard it and was angered".

Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci claimed team-mate Kean should take "50-50" of the blame for the abuse he suffered in his side's 2-0 win at Cagliari.

"We are professionals, we have to set the example and not provoke anyone".

Former Paris Saint-Germain player Matuidi appeared furious at the jeers at the same stadium where he was targeted last season.

Sterling first spoke out about the subject earlier this season when, back in October, he was himself racially abused by Chelsea fans at Stamford Bridge.

Raheem Sterling posted about the incident on his Instagram story.

Following the Serie A match, Matuidi defended Kean, posting on Twitter "White + Black #NoToRacism". "All I can do is laugh", he wrote on his official Instagram account.

"As usual at the stadium there are idiots but also normal people", he said.

"We need to use the cameras, find those who are doing it and punish them".

"He shouldn't have celebrated in that manner", he said. Monkey noises could also be clearly heard among the crowd.

Cagliari president Tommaso Giulini, however, blamed Kean for stirring up tensions and said criticism of his club's supporters was "self-righteousness".

Kean celebrated with his hands outstretched in front of the Cagliari fans after scoring.
