Italian Pundit Luciano Passirani Banned For Racist Romelu Lukaku Comment

And the shocking racist abuse of Lukaku continued this weekend, with an Italian football pundit Luciano Passirani making vile remarks live on TV following Inter's win against Udinese. "I really like him", before adding: "the only way to stop him is to say, "Here are 10 bananas that you can eat".

On the pitch Lukaku has been a huge success already, scoring two goals in three games as Inter sit top of Serie A. But it has been a troubled time off the pitch after he was subjected to monkey chants by Cagliari fans.

Passirani, 80, a guest commentator on TopCalcio24, made the fresh racist outburst while discussing the striker's goalscoring prowess.

"There is nobody stronger, I like him very much".

"These players have something more than the others, these are the guys who make the goals and drag the team".

Asked about whether players should walk off, he said: 'Yes, I think you have to leave a statement, of course, because it's something we need to address'.
