The Munster and Irish winger Simon Zebo has went in hard on the individual at Benetton Rugby that thought it would be funny to give Italian prop at the club a rotten banana in the secret Santa presents.
Benetton have suspended a member of staff as a “precautionary measure” while investigations take place into the racial abuse of Cherif Traorè. The Italy prop Traorè revealed on social media that he was given a rotten banana in the club’s Secret Santa and that his teammates reacted to the present by laughing, making him feel “hurt”.
