A wide variety of racial slurs have been experienced by players in many leagues in Europe. Try they might, but the local governing bodies have so far been unable to cut this weed out of the root.
As a trend that surely forces football to take one step backwards after going so far, racism continues to haunt Italian football which is a shame for a country that in past, boasted so many players of African origin who made a name for themselves at their respective clubs.
