“Roma does not tolerate racism of any kind and the club will support the authorities in identifying and subsequently banning any individuals found guilty of racially abusing the midfielder.”
Monkey chants were directed at 21-year-old Vieira towards the end of the first half of Sunday’s match with an announcement made over the stadium loudspeaker, but the match was not interrupted.
The English U21 international, who was born in Guinea Bissau and raised in Portugal and England, joined Sampdoria in 2018 from Leeds United.
“This happens too often, it shouldn’t be this way,” Vieira told Italian television Rai Sport.
The English footballer later wrote on Instagram: “Football has a responsibility to punish and educate the idiots in the stadium today. Nonetheless, it was a good point for the team.”
The problem of racism is a recurring one in Italian football.
Blaise Matuidi, Kalidou Koulibaly and Moise Kean were also victims of racist abuse last season.
