MILAN (AP) — Mauro Icardi is suing Inter Milan for discrimination, claiming 1.5 million euros ($1.7 million) in damages and to be allowed back into the first-team fold.

In published extracts from the legal document, Icardi alleged the club took “clearly discriminatory” action against him.

The forward said apart from being dropped from advertising campaigns and the team photoshoot for this season’s new jersey, he was also forced to train separately from the first team (after warming up together) and excluded from specific training sessions for forwards, directed by Inter coach Antonio Conte.
