Uefa will look into allegations of racist abuse of Manchester United wonderkid Anthony Elanga by an Italian player while in Sweden.
An incident of suspected racial insults directed at Manchester United’s Anthony Elanga will be investigated by UEFA.
The alleged incident occurred on Tuesday at the conclusion of Sweden’s Under-21 Euros qualifier versus Italy.
After the final whistle, Elanga, who was pulled off in the 72nd minute, was involved in an altercation with opposition players.
The Swedish Football Association also claims that an Italian player racially harassed the United winger.
“In accordance with Article 31(4) of the Uefa Disciplinary Regulations, a Uefa Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector has been assigned to conduct a disciplinary inquiry on the incidents,” European soccer’s governing body said in a statement.
The charges have been refuted by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC).
“The FIGC unequivocally rejects that during yesterday’s match, an opponent was subjected to racist remarks by an Under-21 National Team player,” they added.
“We understand that neither the match officials nor the UEFA representative witnessed any such incident.”
