The Napoli fans got out of the van and fought back, with several receiving knife wounds, before getting back into the vehicle on Via Novara - one of the main roads toward San Siro - and driving off, knocking down the Inter fan on their way.

Inter did not immediately reply to CNN's request for comment.

Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti said some fans made animal noises throughout the entire game. If Italy fails to defeat this cancer then it has no future in football.

"At the beginning of the new year, I will summon the leaders of the Serie A and B football clubs and supporters so that the stadiums and surrounding areas will once again become places of fun and not violence".

However, Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri said only the police can take the decision to suspend a match when asked for his opinion on the incident. Milan police were not immediately contactable when called by CNN International.

Inter won courtesy of a stoppage-time victor from Lautaro Martinez - 10 minutes after Koulibaly had been dismissed - and Spalletti is disappointed that the abusers may believe they have influenced the outcome of the match.

"Racism is ignorance by definition", he told ANSA.
