On Thursday morning, AC Milan suffered racist insults at a friendly game against Pro Patria in the province of Varese in Italy. Milan decided to walk away from the game, as the referee suspended the friendly for the heinous insults by the local crowd.
The game was suspended at the 26th minute of the game due to the racist chants and insults towards the Rossoneri players. Milan Captain Massimiliano Allegri ordered his players to leave the field immediately after the game was suspended.
The local fans were yelling racist chants to the Milan players of color. Some of the victims were French forward MBaye Niang, Dutch midfielder Urby Emanuelson, and Ghanaian midfielder Boateng.
ESPN Deportes reported that during the heat of the moment, Boateng responded to the local crowd and kicked a soccer ball at them. The Ghanaian was also reported to have taken his shirt off and faced the racist crowd.
ESPN also reported that Boateng’s reaction was applauded by other spectators that were in the crowd and began singing soccer chants to support the Ghanaian player.
In the end, the Captain of AC Milan, Allegri, got his players off the field to show that the team will not tolerate any racist or lewd actions by fanatics.
