The great Italian sportsavis Corriere dello Sport has aroused great indignation with their front page for Thursday's newspaper.
It is by many perceived as far over the limit of what one can afford.
the Front will be adorned by the Inters Romelu Lukaku and Roma Chris Smalling in connection with Friday's showdown between the two large groups.
The two are former team-mates at Manchester United, and it is not as such something wrong. The people raging over is, however, that the two on the front are accompanied by the headline 'Black Friday'. See here:
Readers have since gone to the keys to rage against the Italian media on the social media.
A reader writes: 'Just when you think that Italian football can not go any further down, hit it a new low with the Corriere dello Sport front page.'
another writes: 'The Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport headline is' Black Friday', as Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling will meet this Friday in Serie A. This is not normally'.
Also Smallings club, AS Roma, have responded on Twitter. Here's how:
The Italian ESPN journalist Matteo Bonetti has also given his say on Twitter:
'To say that I am shocked would be a lie right now. Complete embarrassing of the Corriere dello Sport to get on the headline for Friday's showdown against Inter and Roma,' he writes.
Italian football has fought against a number of racist incidents directed against the players this season.
Romelu Lukaku was, for example, met with abelyde, when he had to take a penalty kick in the away game against Cagliari earlier this season.
Mario Balotelli has also been hit by rascisme, and he responded by threatening to leave the pitch at the away game against Hellas Verona.
Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling have both impressed in their respective clubs since they came to in the summer: Lukaku has the net 10 times in the league for Inter, and Smalling has been strong in defence for Roma, where he is on loan from Manchester United, but Roma would be very interested in making the agreement permanent.
Black Friday is originally a us concept relating to the Friday after Thanksgiving, where stores in the UNITED states for years has held fire sales of goods.
the Phenomenon has in recent years also grown large in Denmark, and it took place last Friday.
