Italian Newspaper Shockingly Dub Inter Milan Vs Roma As 'Black Friday' In Racism Storm

An Italian newspaper have disgustingly dubbed Friday night's Serie A clash between Inter Milan and Roma as 'Black Friday'.

Corriere dello Sport ran a 'Black Friday' headline with photos of Inter Milan's Romelu Lukaku and Roma's Chris Smalling either side.

The duo used to play together at Manchester United so their images are likely attempting to play on that.

But the headline has outraged fans and officials online in another huge race storm in Italy.

The newspaper have yet to comment on the scandal.

Italian football has been blighted with racism scandals over the last year and this season has seen a number of high profile cases.

Lukaku himself was subjected to monkey chants among other slurs as he stepped up to take a penalty against Cagliari back in September.

Mario Balotelli has also found himself on the receiving end of horrific abuse.

The Italian forward kicked the ball into the Hellas Verona crowd after being abused and threatened to walk off the pitch.

The latest scandal is set to overshadow what could be one of Serie A's games of the season.

Antonio Conte's side are top of Serie A while Roma are outside the top four on goal difference.

Lukaku and Smalling have settled into their respective sides comfortably since leaving Old Trafford in the summer.

It's a shame that horrible off-field antics are likely set to take away from the on-field action.
