Juventus forward Moise Kean was a subject of racial abuse in the Bianconeri’s 2-0 win over Cagliari at the Sardegna Arena on Tuesday night
The encounter between the Turin giants and the Sardinians was interrupted for three minutes after the 19-year-old striker scored the second goal for Juve.
The home fans have directed a series of insults and offensive chants towards the youngster, which is why the traveling side wanted to abandon the field.
Led by the captain Giorgio Chiellini and midfielder Blaise Matiudi, the visitors warned referee Piero Giacomelli the entire team will walk off should the chants continue.

The Rossoblu captain Luca Ceppitelli tried to calm down his side’s fans, as he went over to the supporters behind the goal in a desperate attempt to make things right.
Meanwhile, Kean has stood firm under siege, confronting Cagliari’s supporters, who were insulting him for three minutes.
The Italy international has also tried to appeal to the world of football to prevent similar actions to happen in the future by posting a picture on Instagram.
After the situation cooled down, the crowd at the Sardegna Arena was handed a warning over the public address system.
Blaise Matuidi, who was also a subject of racial harassment in the past, posted a picture on his official Instagram profile, giving his support to his younger teammate.
