Roma fan and journalist banned for racist abuse towards Barrow

Feb 11, 2020, 4:59 PM

During his heroic display in Friday’s Serie A match, Bologna striker Musa Barrow was the target of racist abuse from a Roma fan in the Stadio Olimpico press box.

Barrow produced a man-of-the-match display in Rome, scoring two goals and providing an assist as Bologna edged Roma with a 3-2 win.

In the course of the game, a Roma fan racially insulted the 21-year-old Gambia international who has now scored three goals in his arrival from Atalanta in January.

Although he was dismissed from the press box after he was reported to the stewards, Goal understands Roma have taken a firm stance against such inhumane acts with severe punishments.

The Giallorossi have banned the fan from buying tickets to any of their games for the next three years while the journalist who sold his slot in the press box to the culprit has been given a year suspension.
