AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng left the field in protest after being the victim of what his club described as racist abuse during a friendly on Thursday.
It was quickly established that play would not restart. Milan’s official website, acmilan.com:
“AC Milan leaves the pitch after racist abuse by a minority of Pro Patria fans at Boateng, (Mbaye) Niang, (Urby) Emanuelson and (Sulley) Muntari. The rest of the fans in the stands disassociated themselves from such racist events.”
Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri told reporters: “We are disappointed and saddened by what has happened. Milan play for the right to respect all players. We need to stop these uncivilized gestures.
