Firmino issued a statement on the Liverpool website welcoming the decision.

He said: “As difficult as it has been to remain publicly silent, given the serious and damaging nature of what it was claimed I said during the game, I did so to demonstrate my respect for the process and to allow the issue to be investigated in the most thorough way.

“It is critical for football that tackling racism and all forms of discrimination is taken extremely seriously. As someone who has experienced racist abuse during my life, I know how damaging and hurtful it can be.

“Now the process is concluded, I would like to place on record, for the avoidance of any doubt, I did not say the word, or a variation of the word, that was claimed and subsequently reported in the media. I did not use any language that referenced race. I did not – and would never – reference a person’s skin colour or culture, by means of insult, during a dispute or an argument.

“There is no place for discrimination on a football pitch, or anywhere else in life for that matter. I am pleased after exhaustive reviews of all the evidence, in this specific incident, the matter is resolved.”

After the incident Holgate immediately told referee Bobby Madley what he thought he had heard along with several team-mates and the incident was formally reported at the end of the match.

In the course of its investigation, which lasted more than six weeks, the FA took statements from 12 players and officials from both teams along with the match officials, none of whom heard the words alleged to have been used by Firmino.


As part of the investigation, the FA had the footage assessed by two independent Portuguese-speaking lip reading experts as well as a Brazilian-Portuguese linguistic specialist.

“The evidence obtained from the experts did not support the allegation,” said the statement.

Nice excuse to avoid a criminal charge by police, no doubt.

Matuidi & Moise Kean the latest victims....

Bonuci & Allegri showing amazing support here after Kean celebrated his goal by standing in front of the crowd with open arms....it's fucking sad

Quote:
“He shouldn’t have celebrated in that manner,” Allegri said afterwards in a press conference reported by the club.

“He is a young man and he has to learn, but certain things from the crowd also shouldn’t be heard.”

In his post-match comments to broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, Allegri turned his attention to the need for the football authorities to tackle the “idiots” head on.

“You need great intelligence to deal with these situations and should not go to provoke people. That, of course, does not mean the idiots in the crowd and the way they reacted should be justified,” the Juventus boss said.

“As always in life, there are idiots who do stupid things and ruin it for everyone else.

“I don’t think talking about it all the time helps. I don’t think halting play helps, because not everyone in the stadium did that.

“We need to use the cameras, find those who are doing it and punish them. It’s very simple, identify them and not one-year ban or two, just give them a lifetime ban.

“We’ve got the technology, it can be done if the authorities want to. The problem is, they don’t really want to.”

Defender Bonucci also appeared to suggest Kean could have opted for another way to handle the unsavoury atmosphere at the Sardegna Arena.

“Kean knows that when he scores a goal, he has to focus on celebrating with his teammates. He knows he could’ve done something differently too,” Bonucci told Sky Sport Italia.

“There were racist jeers after the goal, Blaise heard it and was angered. I think the blame is 50-50, because Moise shouldn’t have done that and the Curva (Cagliari’s ‘ultra’ fans) should not have reacted that way.

“We are professionals, we have to set the example and not provoke anyone.”
i'd beg to differ, when you've been harassed by racists and bigots throughout the game and you score a goal, then you celebrate how you fucking want, end of

agreed

I'd even take it further and think Juve missed a golden opportunity to make a real statement yesterday by walking off the pitch (as requested by Matuidi), 15 points clear off Napoli with 8 games to go + they're loaded so a point deduction or fine wouldn't have been the end of the world..i'm a romantic, yes....
