Mario Balotelli left the field of play during Brescia ‘s Serie A match against
Verona after being racially abused by supporters.

The former Manchester City and Liverpool striker was dribbling by the corner flag when he picked up the ball and booted it into the area of the stand where the chants were originating.

Balotelli was convinced by his teammates to continue playing after an announcement was read out to supporters in line with Uefa’s protocol.

The Italian went on to score in the closing stages of the match.
The incident comes just a day after Roma’s match against Napoli was halted due to racist chants aimed at Senegalese defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

“Since my Italian is not good I didn’t really understand what happened but I’m against any sort of territorial discrimination,” said Paulo Fonseca, Roma’s Portuguese coach, adding that incidents like these happen “in many matches all over the world”.
“To me, it was more important to see our captain (Dzeko) talk to the fans and see that it didn’t occur again,” Fonseca added.
