Italian midfielder Jorginho has urged his national league committee, the Serie A to take a wider look at handling racism issues.

The midfielder wants everyone to come together while handling such issues which clearly indicate a lack of education on the part of the criminal.

I am really sorry, because these things shouldn’t happen – neither in football nor in the world,” the Chelsea and Italy midfielder said.

“Unfortunately, they happen and I am really sorry. I’d like to send my affection to Mario, who doesn’t deserve this.

“And if I may, I’d like to ask not to do things like this, because it really hurts these people and it should never happen.

“Unfortunately, it happened, but I don’t think this happened only in Verona. It’s happening everywhere.

“Therefore, I think we shouldn’t penalise or point the finger only on Verona, we should take a broader look, because it didn’t happen only in Verona.

“Yes, they made a mistake and it is true that it’s not the first time, but how many times [has] it happened in other cities as well? It shouldn’t happen, I repeat, and I am really sorry, but we have to take a broader look to all the cities where it happened and not only to Verona.”
