Former Ghana international Kevin-Prince Boateng has thrown his support behind Sulley Muntari and his decision to walk off the pitch after being racially abused.
Speaking on the incident afterwards, Prince expressed sadness over what happened to Sulley, throwing his total support behind him.
Prince himself has suffered racial abuse in the past.
“I’m sad and I understand Sulley Muntari. Everyone knows that he is a wonderful guy and a winner,” Boateng told Sky Sport.
“If he left the field, it’s because something happened, and I have to say it shook me a little bit.
“It’s difficult to explain how I feel. I’m sad and angry because those who are around close their eyes.”
Muntari, currently a player for Italian side Pescara, walked off the pitch during his side’s game against Cagliari, after being racially abused by the home fans. His complaints against the abuse earned him a yellow card from the referee.
Boateng and Muntari are linked in more ways than one. Prince also walked off the pitch as a player of A.C Milan after suffering racial abuse in a friendly game against a lower league side. Muntari was part of that team, who all walked off in solidarity with Prince. They also both infamously got kicked off the Ghana 2014 World Cup team after proving to be disruptive influences in camp.
