US Sassuolo midfielder Alfred Duncan is impressed with Inter Milan initiative against racism.

Fans are barred from attending as punishment for repeated racist abuse, but the Nerazzurri gained permission to allow in 11,000 children from local schools.

Inter have also launched a campaign turning the racist jeer BUU into an acronym for Brothers Universally United, represented also with a patch on their jerseys during their Saturday's goalless drawn game against the Neroverdi .

“The initiative from Inter against racism is very important, as it sends a message to everyone on an issue that is not good for sport. The club is dealing with the situation well, because those who insult are just a minority," Duncan told Inter TV.

“The fact that it was played behind closed doors changed things for us, too. At least the kids had fun and enjoyed the opportunity.”

Duncan went off in the 72nd minute after suffering a knock to the ankle following a clash with compatriot Kwadwo Asamoah.
