He is to be prosecuted for "incitement to racial hatred" and faces a fine and a stadium ban, according to this source.

In a video that appeared on social media, a person could be heard hurling racist insults at Maignan, a French international who was born in French Guyana, as he warmed up just before the match.

The supporters' club to which the suspect belonged announced on its website his immediate expulsion, "firmly dissociating itself from such behaviour and condemning it strongly".

Maignan, who arrived in Milan this summer from Lille, called for a concerted response.

"We need to be more and all united in this battle against a societal issue bigger than football himself," he wrote in a social media post in French, Italian and English. "Do the people who take decisions know what it feels to hear insults that portray us as animals."

"I am not a 'victim' of racism. I am Mike, standing up, black and proud," he had said
