MOISE KEAN rose above vile racism to score Juventus’ second as they beat Cagliari.
But team-mate Leonardo Bonucci incredibly claimed he was “50-50 to blame” for the ugly scenes following his goal.

Italian international Kean, 19, scored his fourth in four for club and country in a 2-0 win.
Kean was subjected to disgraceful monkey chants and celebrated his goal in similar fashion to Raheem Sterling against Montenegro as he stood facing the stands with his arms outstretched.
Kean, who later posted a ‘shhhhh’ emoji to social media, was abused so badly during the game that Cagliari skipper Luca Ceppitelli had to plead with his own fans to stop.
Team-mate Blaise Matudi was involved in a touchline row with Juve boss Max Allegri as he seemed to suggest the players should walk off following the late second.
While Bonucci, who scored the opener, shockingly chose to lay part of the blame at Kean’s feet.
He told Sky Sport Italia: “Kean knows that when he scores a goal, he has to focus on celebrating with his team-mates.
“He knows he could’ve done something differently too.
“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 should not have reacted that way.
“We are professionals, we have to set the example and not provoke anyone.
“I prefer to talk about the great performance. We were aggressive on the wings, as we knew they could cause problems with crosses.
Juve took the lead in the 23rd minute when Bonucci rose highest in the penalty area to head in a corner.
And Kean completed victory for the defending champs five minutes from time.
