Roma FC Apologise for 'Racist Chants' Directed at Sampdoria's Ronaldo Vieira

Seria A club "Roma Fc" have come out to apologize to Sampdoria's   player "Ronaldo Vieira" after the midfielder was a victim of racist abuse in Sunday's Serie A meeting.

Ronaldo Vieira who was a former Leeds united player, played the entire 90minutes of the game, and was subjected to racial abuse abuse by a section of the visiting Roma support fans during the 0-0 draw at Stadio Luigi Ferraris – which was Claudio Ranieri's first game at the Sampdoria as head coach.

"I heard it, but I don't want to talk about it. This happens too often, it shouldn't be this way," England youth international Vieira told Rai Sport after the match.

However, Roma Fc were quick to respond, taking to their social media platform Twitter to apologise to the 21-year-old and vowing to ban any supporters found guilty of racist abuse.

"Roma would like to apologise to Ronaldo Vieira for the racist boos he was subjected to," the post read.

"Roma does not tolerate racism of any kind and the club will support the authorities in identifying and subsequently banning any individuals found guilty of racially abusing the midfielder.
