Boateng, Asamoah, other African stars support Koulibaly after racial abuse

African players including Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Faouzi Ghoulam, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Kwadwo Asamoah have shown support to Kalidou Koulibaly after he was allegedly racially abused in Wednesday’s Serie A fixture.

The Senegal international was a subject of monkey chants from the fans in an encounter that Inter Milan won 1-0 courtesy of Lautaro Martinez's last-gasp effort.

Koulibaly was later sent off after receiving a second yellow card in the closing stages of the tie for sarcastically clapping for the referee, immediately after he got his first warning.

However, in the spirit of togetherness, African stars joined their colleagues including Cristiano Ronaldo, Vincent Kompany and Mauro Icardi to condemn the act.
