Bakayoko Responds To Racist Chants Aimed at Him and Fellow Teammate
Bakayoko has claimed that himself and team-mate Franck Kessie were subjected to verbal chants in a Serie A game which AC Milan won 2-0.
“The federal prosecutors’ office has opened an investigation against Lazio following the complaint by AC Milan,” said the Italian Football Federation.
Italian prosecutors are examining video footage from the game.
“To some Lazio fans and their racist cries towards to me and my brother Franck Kessie. We are strong and proud of our skin colour,” said Bakayoko on Instagram before the investigation was opened.
“I have my all confidence in our club to identify them.”
AC Milan have won their opening three Serie A games this season and face Juventus on Sunday.
Bakayoko joined Milan on a two-year loan in August
