A video that has become viral on social media shows a Lazio fan racially abusing Inter defender Denzel Dumfries, so many are calling for a ban from stadiums.
With fans returning in stadiums, racism cases have multiplied in Italy.
The last one comes from the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, where cameras caught a Lazio fan allegedly targeting Dumfries with monkey chants.
È telegenico, quindi per fortuna le immagini sono chiare. In tv viene bene, quindi per fortuna non possono esserci dubbi sulla sua identità. Sta facendo il verso della scimmia a #Dumfries. Trovarlo e sbatterlo fuori dagli stadi dovrebbe essere molto semplice. pic.twitter.com/2Dc1nMWPLr

Thousands of users have shared the video, with many calling Lazio to ban their supporter.
There was a similar case at Florence’s Artemio Franchi before the break two weeks ago, with Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly called monkey by a supporter in the Curva Fiesole.
Police and Fiorentina identified the fan with the Tuscans who want to ban him from their stadium for life.
