Platini to probe alleged racism by Lazio fans aimed at Spurs stars Lennon and Defoe

Mikel, 25, apologised for giving the ball away in the lead-up to Juve’s equaliser and closed his Twitter account on Thursday. His manager insisted anonymous abuse on the social network was simply unacceptable.

Di Matteo said: ‘In general the social media world, especially Twitter — because it’s anonymous and so on — is a dangerous vehicle to express yourself. I don’t think it’s fair.

‘If somebody has to express his opinion, he should put his face to it. I’ve spoken to him (Mikel) and to other players as well. It’s something not nice to receive. His intention was to close the account anyway, so it was a good reason.

‘We should do everything to eradicate this kind of discrimination from our society.’
