An Italian television channel says it won’t use one of its pundits again when he made a comment about Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku.
Speaking on TopCalcio24, Luciano Passirani stated:”If you go one-on-one with him he will kill you.
“The only means to come up against him would be maybe offer him 10 beers to consume…”
Programme manager Fabio Ravezzani stated, despite Passirani’s”instant apologies” which”he would no longer take part on our broadcasts”.
Lukaku, who transferred from Manchester United to Inter in the summer, helped his side to a win against Udinese on Saturday.
“Mr Passirani is 80 years old and to compliment Lukaku he had a metaphor which turned out to be envious,” additional Ravezzani.
“I think that it was a terrible absence of short term lucidity.
“I can’t tolerate any kind of mistakes, even if momentary.”
When he scored a punishment in a 2-1 success for his side Cagliari fans recently subjected to monkey chants lukaku.
Later, the Belgium global stated the abuse showed the game has been”going backwards”.
