Of course, the great deals had nothing to do with the sports site. Instead, Corriere dello Sport published an article criticizing racism, which is a hot topic in Italy, as discrimination and football unfortunately go one step further.
Both Lukaku and Smalling took the floor in social media and denounced the title. "This is the stupidest title I've ever seen in my career. You are pouring oil on racism. Instead of talking about the beautiful game played between two great teams in San Siro" Lukaku said.
Belgian bakery Milano Inter and AS Roma, the employer of Smalling, will meet tonight, and yesterday both clubs announced that Corriere dello Sport journalists will not be welcomed to them at least this year.
Ivan Zazzaroni, editor-in-chief of the sports magazine, also spoke. The journalist criticized the critics of the opening. "If you don't understand our message, you're either stupid or race. It's an innocent title that is now in a different light for people who are poisonous from the inside." Of course, the stunning statement has been flooded with criticism.
