Milan mayor Beppe Sala, an Inter supporter, said on Facebook that the next time he hears racist chanting at the San Siro he'll stand up and leave.

He was sent off in the 81st minute after receiving two yellow cards in quick succession, the second for sarcastically applauding the referee after being shown the first.

Ancelotti claimed the visitors asked three times for the game to be called off and suggested the Partenopei would "stop play ourselves" the next time an incident occurred. Of being French, Senegalese, Neapolitan: "man".

The 35-year-old Inter fan, who has not yet been named, was hit by a van and rushed to hospital, but later died from his injuries, as reported by Sky Sports.

Meanwhile, an Inter Milan fan has died after he was struck by a vehicle during clashes with Napoli supporters outside Milan's San Siro stadium.

Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah returned from his one-match ban to help Inter Milan beat Napoli 1-0 in the Serie A on Boxing Day.

"Koulibaly was agitated and nervous, which is normal", Ancelotti said.

Inter eventually clinched victory in stoppage time, but the post-match reaction was dominated by head coach Carlo Ancelotti's revelations that Napoli had asked for play to be suspended on three occasions, citing the abuse of Koulibaly as the reason.

"I apologise to Kalidou Koulibaly on my own behalf and on behalf of the people of Milan who testify to the feeling that we are brothers even in these hard times".

It's going to take high-profile figures to speak up and the Mayor of Milan, Giuseppe Sala, did so in the wake of the abuse suffered by Koulibaly.

A host of prominent football figures spoke out on the incident, including Liverpool's "Egyptian King" Mo Salah, who tweeted: "There's no place for racism in football. No to racism and any other offence and discrimination", he wrote.

"If you get to a point where you won't stop a game, after repeated requests, it really means that you do not have the courage to impose what should be the rules of the sport". "It's not good, not for us, nor for Italian football", he added.
