The controversy continues over the episode of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku during the Inter – Milan derby in the Coppa Italia. There are those who consider both guilty and those who take sides with one or the other.
Among those who condemn the Swedish there is also Codacons, the Coordination of associations for the defense of the environment and the rights of users and consumers. Their president Carlo Rienzi revealed that he had asked for the Rossoneri striker to be let go from the Sanremo 2021 Festival, the famous Italian musical event in which his presence is expected. This is what he had to say:
“After the racist insults by Ibrahimovic during the quarrel with Lukaku, it seems unthinkable to have the player intervene as guest of honor at the Festival. Rai would in fact risk passing the wrong message that the company endorses racism, giving a place of honor to a player who has become the protagonist of a hateful episode. On the contrary, Sanremo, as well as sport and entertainment in general, should be a temple of equality and respect for every individual and every diversity. For this reason, today we are sending a formal warning to Rai , asking, in the event that the Festival should take place regularly, not to allow Ibrahimovic to participate in it.“
