Torino striker Riccardo Meggiorini allegedly racially abused Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba on Sunday.
Torino striker Riccardo Meggiorini will be investigated by Italian football authorities for allegedly racially abusing Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba during the two sides' Serie A clash on Sunday.
However, the 27-year-old denies the allegations and insists that the insults he threw at the Frenchman were "perfectly normal".
"There was an insult but it was a perfectly normal one, the kind you get in football, nothing to do with racism," ESPN quotes him as saying.
Juventus won the Turin derby 2-0 to retain their 11-point lead at the top of the Serie A table.
