Crotone and Nigeria forward Simeon Tochukwu Nwanko, popularly called “Simy” has become the latest Crotone player to suffer racist abuse.

The 28-year-old lanky striker was targeted on Instagram in the aftermath of Crotone’s defeat against Bologna in the Seria A week 28 game. 3-2 it ended, with Simy scoring the second goal of the day for Crotone.

The message from the Instagram handler @im_graa to Simy in Italian says “I enjoy if your son dies of pancreatic cancer”

Simy, however in his reply on the screenshot says “Let’s make him famous because he deserves it”. And without obscuring the name of the individual who the insults.
