Sampdoria and England Under-21s midfielder Ronaldo Vieira has been the target of monkey chants from Roma fans.
The incident occurred during the 0-0 draw in Serie A at Sampdoria’s Luigi Ferraris Stadium.
Monkey chants were audible from the visiting supporters, for which Roma later tweeted an apology.
“I heard it but I don’t want to talk about it,” Vieira, 21, told Italian TV. “This happens too often, it shouldn’t be this way.”
Vieira was born in Guinea-Bissau and moved to England at a young age, joining Sampdoria from Leeds in 2018.
This is the latest racist incident to afflict Italian football this season.
