first_imgAdvertisementIn the wake of Moise Kean receiving racist chants and gestures in Juventus’ away trip to Cagliari , team captain Leonardo Bonucci spoke after the game that the blame was “50-50” between Cagliari fans and Kean. The soccer world united in calling the Italian defender out for not condemning racism but instead imposing blame on the victim of a severe racism episode.Bonucci took to Instagram to clarify himself but its a hard-sell. The English translation of the post reads : After 24 hours I want to clarify my feelings. Yesterday I was interviewed right at the end of the game, and my words have been clearly misunderstood, probably because I was too hasty in the way I expressed my thoughts. Hours and years wouldn’t be enough to talk about this topic. I firmly condemn all forms of racism and discrimination. The abuses are not acceptable at all and this must not be misunderstood.While team captains like Harry Kane who openly say that they are ready to walk their teams out of the pitch under such circumstances, people like Bonucci do not make a lot of sense.The veteran defender might have been in an haste but if denying racism was natural to a person then haste certainly wouldn’t have been an issue.Advertisementlast_img
