Lulic unlikely to be charged with racism


La Repubblica reports Lazio midfielder is reporting that Lulic will be charged with unsporting conduct, rather than with racism.

The Federal Prosecutor of the FIGC, Giuseppe Pecoraro, has ruled that Lulic’s words aren’t racism. The Prosecutor opened an inveistigation right away and even studied the player’s interview with SportMediaset. Should Lulic had been charged with racism, he would have risked of missing up to 10 matches under the new legislation of FIGC president Tavecchio.
 
Therefore, it’s most likely Lulic will be charged under Article 1 of the Sports Justice Code and risks a 2-3 match ban. This decision, which hasn’t been made official yet, will definitely cause controversy, given that many wanted to see an example made of the Bosnian.
