Kalidou Kolibaly

The Napoli coach pointed to Koulibaly's dismissal in the 80th minute as the game's turning point, suggesting the defender had been severely "shaken" by the abuse.

Italian FA president Gabriele Gravina is "considering" whether Serie A should be suspended after an Inter Milan fan died ahead of the Napoli match.

Meanwhile, Milan mayor Guiseppe Sala apologised to Koulibaly for the abuse, asking the 27-year-old for forgiveness.

Lautaro Martinez's goal in stoppage time proved decisive and was enough to secure three big points that move the Nerazzurri onto 36 points for the season.

"We asked three times for the match to be suspended and there were three announcements, but the match continued", Ancelotti told Sky.

But there was also punishment for Koulibaly, who will have to serve a two-match ban after he was sent off for sarcastically applauding the referee.

Koulibaly was sent off late on after sarcastically applauding the referee following a booking, with Lautaro Martinez then scoring a stoppage-time victor.

"I'm sorry about the defeat and especially to have left my brothers!"

"We asked three times for the match to be halted because of racist chants", Ancelotti said.

"But I am proud of the colour of my skin".

"It's very disappointing not to play in front of our own crowd but, if it's the price we have to pay to win this battle, we'll do it willingly", he added.

Deputy Italian Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said he would call an emergency meeting in the new year and wrote on Twitter: "In 2018 you cannot die for a football match".

It occurred during Napoli's defeat against Inter at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, which he was shown a red card in.

Police have also confirmed that four Napoli supporters were hurt, including one who was the victim of a stabbing. "No to racism or any other type of offence and discrimination!".

Koulibaly, who made a decisive goal-line clearance to deny Inter captain Mauro Icardi, had monkey noises directed at him throughout the match at San Siro stadium.

Many prominent football figures has since spoken out on the incident, including Liverpool's Mo Salah, who tweeted: "There's no place for racism in football". Next time we'll stop playing ourselves. Player is racially abused, referee fails to act, player is angry and gets sent off.
