Moise Kean should LEAVE Juventus due to their lack of support over racist abuse, says Paul Parker
Paul Parker has blasted Juventus for not speaking out against the racist abuse Moise Kean suffered at Cagliari, and says the teen should think about leaving the club.
The 19-year-old striker was subjected to monkey chants from sections of the Cagliari crowd throughout Juve’s away victory on Tuesday.
Kean reacted in the only way a striker can – hitting the back of the net – before defiantly responding to the abuse by celebrating silently in front of the home supporters.
However, Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci and manager Massimiliano Allegri have both come under fire for comments they made about the incident.
Following the match, Bonucci sensationally claimed Kean provoked the racial abuse he suffered, saying ‘the blame is 50-50’ between him and the crowd.
Meanwhile, Juve boss Allegri said Kean should have risen above the chants and ‘shouldn’t have celebrated in that manner’, although did say the guilty fans should be banned for life.
Some have also questioned why Juventus have yet to issue a statement condemning the abuse was directed at their player.

And Parker, the former Manchester United and England defender, says such a lack of support would be enough to convince him to leave the Turin side.
Speaking to talkSPORT host Jim White, Parker said: “I thought I would be reading about Juventus coming out, making a point and saying, ‘we’re with you’, but they haven’t.
“Juve, a club of that standing, have not done anything.
“For me, if I was that lad, I would say: ‘Sorry, I’m leaving’.

“It’s been 48 hours and I’ve seen nothing from Juventus, they haven’t done anything, and if your own club are not going to stand by you…
“You expect your club to stand by you and then you think, ‘because you’ve done this for me I’m going to give 100 per cent for you’.
“But they haven’t given him anything back yet, what have they done for him?
“They haven’t gone to the Italian Football Association, they haven’t spoken out against Cagliari for what their supporters have done. They haven’t said anything.
“So, if I was him, I would put it out there that I was thinking about leaving, that I’m going to go where people are going to love me, appreciate me and respect me for being one of their players.”
