The first to want to find the culprit are the managers of Fiorentina: the purple dg Barone has again called Koulibaly to show him his solidarity
The feeling is that you don’t really want to hear about racist insults and howls anymore. It is no longer the time for closed matters with a fine and the label of “bad episode”. Now we need to deepen, understand, punish. Also for this reason yesterday the sports judge Gerardo Mastrandrea took his time, avoiding immediate measures against Fiorentina after the discriminatory chants aimed in particular at Kalidou Koulibaly at the end of the match against Napoli on Sunday at the Franchi. This is not the time for hasty sanctions, on certain forms of intolerance we must act to ensure that they do not happen again. In fact, the judge “took note of the opening of a specific investigation procedure by the Federal Prosecutor’s Office aimed at ascertaining the facts and identifying the perpetrators” and decided to reserve himself “following the procedure itself to adopt the consequent measures, where applicable “.
In short, the work of the FIGC Prosecutor of Chinè is awaited, which has so far received the full collaboration of Fiorentina to identify those responsible, a circumstance that could also be decisive for defining the sanctioning effects of the investigation given that, according to recent federal regulations, in case of effective collaboration of the company with the police, the objective liability could be reduced but also canceled. In fact, the Digos of Florence is also at work, to which the club has already provided all the material it had available. From the first indications it should be a particular fan and the images are being examined to proceed with identification.
Like in Turin
Of course, the video surveillance system of the Curva Fiesole, from which that “monkey of m ….” started, denounced by Koulibaly himself, is compliant with the law, but not at the forefront like the one that at the Juventus Stadium allowed to identify the fan who insulted Maignan. The work therefore continues, in search of certainties. The Tuscan club, fined by the sports judge with a fine of 10 thousand euros for “insulting choirs of territorial origin” towards the Napoli fans, is the first to hope that the culprit will be found who, as he has already announced, will be banished for always from the purple stage. And yesterday the dg Barone spoke again with Koulibaly to reaffirm his solidarity.
