Italian football was hit by another storm of racism as AC Milan goalkeeper Mike Maignan walked off the pitch following alleged abuse from Udinese fans – before the game restarted just 10 minutes later

AC Milan’s clash with Udinese has been called off after racist abuse was allegedly directed at Mike Maignano.

The French goalkeeper is the first player to ask for the match to be stopped because of the abuse he received.

Maignan told referee Maresco, Dazn cameras reported, the line ‘Did you hear that too?’

After leaving the field for about ten minutes, the French player and his teammates returned to the field angry, along with the entire team that supported him.

Many Udinese players hugged and kissed the goalkeeper who consciously decided to send a signal asking the referee to stop the match. His return to the pitch was marked by the Curva whistle in an incredible atmosphere.

Mike Maignain returned between the posts after being calmed down by referee Maresca, but after the announcement over the stadium’s loudspeakers, chants continued and the French goalkeeper, along with other team-mates, left the field again.

The match restarted despite Maignano’s gesture against another episode of racism in Italy.
