FIFA said it is “monitoring the situation” and awaiting the outcome of the Italian football federation’s investigation.

“FIFA’s position on the issue of racism is unequivocally clear: There is no place in football for racism or for any form of discrimination,” FIFA said in a statement.

Shortly after the incident, Constant tweeted a mock-up movie poster of teammates Boateng, Mario Balotelli and M’Baye Niang and the title “Stop Racism.”
