Former Senegal striker Demba Ba has urged all black players to leave Italy following the recent racism storm.

Cagliari fans racially abused Inter striker Romelu Lukaku during a Serie A match last weekend, in what was the latest in a long line of ugly incidents involving clubs on the peninsula.


“And here’s the reason why I decided not to play there when I could…” tweeted Ba with a link to the shocking statement.


“And at that point I wish all the black players would get out of this League!



“Surely it won’t stop their stupidity and hate but at least they won’t affect other [games].”


The 34-year-old also previously played alongside Mikel Obi at Chelsea and several clubs including a stint in China has never plied his trade in Italy.
