Matuidi blasts racism scourge

Blaise Matuidi echoed the disillusionment of other black footballers when he said on Sunday that the events of the week suggested "this is not a world I want my children to see." Matuidi was one of the three Juventus players abused with monkey noises during a victory at Cagliari during the week. Teenage teammate Moise Kean attracted the headlines for facing the home fans as he celebrated the winning goal, but it was the second straight year that Matuidi has suffered such abuse in Cagliari. Alex Sandro was also a target. "It's sad," the World Cup winner told Canal+ in France. "It happened to me last year in this stadium and we cannot tolerate it. You can tell me: 'maybe it's not racist, they just want to unsettle you'," Matuidi said. "No. These are things you do not say and must be punished."
