Vincent Kompany believes racism lies with the football authorities after former Romelu Lukaku became the latest victim of abuse.
Lukaku was subjected throughout Inter Milan Serie A victory .
The chants could be heard before and after the striker scored a penalty in the 72nd minute to win the match.
Inter fans have defended their Cagliari counterparts.
Kompany considers the problem is throughout the planet are not just out of touch but lack the essential diversity to attack the issue properly.
“It goes to who’s predicted to make a decision on those issues, and it’s in these organisations that the problems lie,” Kompany told Sky Sports News.
“The real racism lies in the fact none of these institutions have representatives that could actually understand what Romelu (Lukaku) is moving through.
“You are working with a crowd of individuals and decision-makers that are telling him how he should think and feel about this when you have no decision-makers that are remotely connected with what he’s experienced in his life.
“That is the real issue, if you go via the boards in UEFA or FIFA, the Olympic League or the English League There’s a real lack of diversity
“If you do not have diversity in regions of power like boardrooms then you can’t have the perfect choices in terms of sanctions – it is a simple as that.”
Kompany was speaking during the statement Sky Sports will be revealing his Manchester City testimonial on Wednesday, September 11, live on Sky Sports Premier League.
Kompany played with 360 games for City after linking from Hamburg in 2008, winning four Premier League titles, two FA Cups and four League Cups along the way – like one of each last year, before deciding to leave to become player-coach in Anderlecht this summer.
With an all-star line-up featuring the likes of Cesc Fabregas Mario Balotelli and Thierry Henry, it claims to become a night for the Belgian to renew old acquaintances as well as state a farewell to the bar.
“I have had such a special time at City and the testimonial is not too much a match I’m simply looking forward to for myself, it’s an opportunity to say goodbye,” Kompany said.
“The team have been fantastic for me and I have always provided everything I’ve had and this match is to get them.
“The fact it’s for charity is valuable to me as well – it’s part of Tackle4MCR that’s attempting to have an influence on the displaced in Manchester.
“I have been privileged to grow and develop from the city and it is unrecognisable from 11 years ago when I first joined but it also appears to have left a lot of folks behind also.
“It feels like that which we’ve got a duty to try to influence and what a wonderful chance to do it through soccer.”
