The Italian newspaper had a picture of the two dark-skinned footballers Chris Smalling (on loan from Manchester United to Roma) and Romelu Lukaku (Inter, formerly United) under the controversial headline "Black Friday", as an advance article for the meeting between the Italian clubs at Friday night.
"It's the worst front page I've ever seen," says Solskjaer at a press conference ahead of Saturday's meeting with Manchester City.
- We have obviously been in contact with Chris to support him, and we have also talked to Romelu, the United coach continues.
Corriere dello Sport wanted to highlight the two players as role models in the work against racism, but the seemingly good intention was met by strong reactions from the football world with allegations of racism.
- First, when you see such a front page, you ask yourself: Really? It is possible? said Sunshine.
