"I'm sorry about the defeat and especially to have left my brothers! But I am proud of the color of my skin. Of being French, Senegalese, Neapolitan: a man.”
-- Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly, who was ejected from the Serie A match at Inter Milan and issued a two-game suspension after receiving a second yellow card for sarcastically applauding the referee Paolo Mazzoleni when he was originally booked late in the 1-0 loss.
