Napoli disagrees with the decision of the Italian Football Federation to exonerate Inter defender Francesco Acerbi in the case of racism allegations against Juan Jesus.

The club disagrees with the decision to completely absolve the Inter defender and plans to express its protest, as reported by Calciomercato.

"If no sanctions were applied to Acerbi, then it means that Juan Jesus is at fault for unfairly accusing his colleague. It is unreasonable to think that he misunderstood the words spoken," the club's statement said.

In addition, Napoli's revenue director, Tommaso Bianchini, stated that the club will not wear the "Keep Racism Out" patch on their shirts after the decision. Napoli also will not participate in formal initiatives aimed at combating racism and plans to carry out its own actions.

Recall that during the Serie A match between Inter and Napoli, there was a dispute on the football field between Acerbi and Jesus. The Brazilian approached the referee and claimed that the Inter defender called him a racial slur. Acerbi denied all accusations against him.
