SC Napoli defender Juan Jesus has made a powerful statement addressed to the Fiorentina fans who racially abused his teammate Kalidou Koulibaly during the game at the Artemio Franchi stadium. Napoli defeated Fiorentina in a match away from home on football results 2:1. Thanks to Lozano, and Rrahmani for scoring the goal and leading the Italian club win over Fiorentina.
“The year of 2021 and there are still people who are heading the wrong way, making fool of and humiliating themselves. While the world is on the way to union and integration, there are still some enthusiasts of the Middle Ages shouting insults at another person. Well, I have a message for those who are still so far behind the times, for those who want to remain anachronistically ignorant and racist: wake up!!!” the Brazilian wrote via Instagram.
He continued, “The story goes on. Update the software. But above all: shame on you. There is no room for hatred in 2021. There is no place for you in the stadiums. In the cities. There is no place for you in a community based on mutual respect. It has nothing to do with Florence, which is a wonderful city. It has to do with those people who have shown how far ignorance can go.”
“And unfortunately they can be found everywhere, in any nation or country. They must be identified and serious measures taken. These individuals must be re-educated from the base, from the most important text: the Constitution of the Italian Republic,” Juan added.
Juan also mentioned an Article that explains equality. “Article 3 says ’All citizens have equal social dignity and are equal before the law, without any distinction of their sex, race, language, religion, political opinion, personal and social conditions. Forza KK! [Koulilbaly’s initials] Long live the world of color, united and modern”, he concluded.
