Cagliari avoid sanctions following alleged racist abuse of Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku

Cagliari have avoided punishment after supporters allegedly aimed racist abuse at Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku this month. 
Former Manchester United player Lukaku appeared to be subjected to monkey chants as he prepared to take – and score – a match-winning penalty in Inter’s 2-1 Serie A victory on Sept 1 at the Sardegna Arena.
But, following an investigation, the Italian Football Federation’s sporting justice panel has ruled that the chants could not be considered discriminatory in terms of their “scale and realisation”.
A statement from Lega Serie A said the panel had therefore decided not to apply sanctions to the club. 
Cagliari police told federation investigators that “only on the occasion” of Lukaku’s penalty were “chants, shouts and whistles aimed at the opposition athlete as he prepared to take his shot”.
