AC Milan call for action against racism
Milan: AC Milan responded to FIFA president Sepp Blatter by urging "national and international authorities" to take action against racism in the sport.
The club has been in the spotlight this week after their midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng walked off for receiving persistent racist abuse from the stands in a friendly with lower league side Pro Patria, Xinhua reports.
FIFA president Blatter Sunday said that Boateng was wrong to "run away" from the insults. And Milan released a statement in response to his comments.
"AC Milan reaffirm its dissent towards all forms of racism, however they are manifested," read the statement.
"We invite the national and international sporting authorities to adopt and apply every rule against racism," it said.
