The "Corriere dello Sport" was invested yesterday by a huge fuss due to the title "Black Friday" which put Lukaku and Smalling on the front page ahead of Inter-Roma. Today the sports newspaper defends itself and apologizes to the two players
LINCIAGGIO – "Accused by a grotesque people's court, we were disqualified for a month from Rome and Milan . It sounds like a joke, but it's all true. It would have sufficed to sift through the eyelet and the bolt, which in journalistic jargon are the words written respectively above and below the main title, to understand that the Corriere dello Sport-Stadio did not want in any way to denigrate, or worse, mock, the players. If anything, emphasize its importance, using a very common expression in shopping centers, as a virtuous example of integration. The purpose was to associate the technical centrality of the two professionals with the value of two men committed against all forms of discrimination ".
ANTIRAZZISMO – "Yet no one has said a word in the past few months, when the Corriere dello Sport-Stadio has taken very tough positions against racism, supporting the demands of Lukaku and Balotelli himself , applauding the club's initiatives (Rome in the first place) that stigmatized racist incidents, clamoring for an intervention by the League that eventually arrived, albeit late. But this was not news. "
EXCUSES – "In the frenzied climate of the day, the two players involved, Lukaku and Smalling , commented on the event last. For them, who are extraordinary professionals, we are sincerely sorry: it was not our intent to hurt them, if anything to exalt them. Therefore we will continue to fight racism. And ignorance ".
