FBL-RACISM-FIFA-BOATENG

FIFA president President Sepp Blatter (Far R) gestures next to AC Milan's German-born Ghanaian international Kevin-Prince Boateng (2 R) after a meeting at the Home of FIFA on March 22, 2013 in Zurich. In a January friendly against Pro Patria, Boateng and two other black teammates suffered racist abuse from a small group of fans of the side from Busto Arsizio outside Milan. Boateng took offence and walked off the pitch, followed by his entire team. Blatter has raised concerns about players taking matters into their own hands but has since said clubs whose fans are guilty of racial abuse could be either docked points or relegated.
