In the recent encounter with Lazio, Leece had a successful comeback against coach Maurizio Sarri’s army, thereby extending the unbeaten streak in Serie A to 4.
The home team conceded a goal right from the 14th minute, after the goal of Ciro Immobile. However, two goals in the second half helped them turn the situation around.
However, the joy that the Leece stars had was not complete because some Lazio fans had racist words against Samuel Umtiti when their team received defeat.
Umtiti and Lameck Banda, the Zambian striker, have been the targets of slurs. He left the field at the end of the game in tears but also received great support from NHM Lecce.
Umtiti moved to Leece last summer on loan from Barcelona. Here, the French star showed an impressive performance and became the mainstay of the Italian team.
After the match, Leece’s side also posted a message to comfort Umtiti: “Racist words were drowned out by encouraging songs! All the Lecce fans started shouting one name: Umtiti.”
