“I currently don't see a player like Lukaku in Italy. In no team, neither in Juve, nor in Inter, nor in Milan, nor in Rome, nor in Lazio … there is no one strongerI like it very much. The whole team changes you. If you go one on one you are dead, you fall to the ground. The only way to stop it would be by giving him 10 bananas to eat”, Said the Italian journalist Luciano Passirani.

Despite its compliments for the Belgian international's style of play, Passirani went too far to compare Lukaku with a primate.

After the inappropriate comment, Passirani was fired by the director of the sports channel Top Calcio.

Racism has been the order of the day in Italian football, where Lukaku had already been the victim of public insults, for example against Cagliari on day two, the Tifosi imitated the screams of a monkey when the Belgian charged a penalty, which meant 1-2 in favor of the Nerazzurro team.
