Monaco coach questioned over alleged racist insults

AS Monaco's Italian coach Marco Simone was briefly questioned by French police as part of a probe into alleged racist insults he made against an airport worker, a source close to the enquiry said on Thursday.

The affair goes back to August 15 last year when the former AC Milan player was at Paris' main Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle Airport before taking a plane.

According to reports, an airport worker of Moroccan nationality who was helping a wheelchair-bound passenger requested that Simone pay attention to a child who was accompanying him and was playing in front of the wheelchair.

The airport worker was allegedly insulted by 43-year-old Simone and filed a complaint with police the following day.

A meeting between Simone and the alleged victim was organised on Wednesday before the coach was released. The source added that the enquiry was continuing.
