Chelsea and AC Milan midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko was the subject of a vile racist chant from the Lazio ultras today in sad news, according to Milan News.
Ultras reportedly aimed a disgusting ‘this banana is for Bakayoko’ chant at the Frenchman as he made his return to the San Siro, with this being the midfielder’s second loan spell with the Rossoneri.
The ace made his return for the Rossoneri off the bench this afternoon. He replaced Franck Kessie in the 61st minute, was yellow carded just two minutes later and was then forced off in the 74th minute.
Bakayoko was also racially abused by a group of the very same fanbase back in April 2019 ahead of a Coppa Italia second-leg tie , during his first loan spell with Milan, as reported by the Independent.
Bakayoko torna in campo e dalla curva della Lazio si alza il coro becero: “Poporororo poporororo questa banana è per Bakayoko”. @MilanNewsit

It’s a real shame to see that a special day for the France international has been overshadowed by the despicable acts of some Lazio supporters.
Bakayoko is still tied to Chelsea, with the midfielder returning to Milan on a two-year loan deal this summer, with the San Siro outfit reporting that it will be made permanent if certain conditions are met.
