Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany, Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand and Stoke City striker Michael Owen have tweeted after an AC Milan player left the pitch because he was subjected to racist chants:
I can only salute Milan's decision to leave the pitch. Also noted that the majority of the fans were completely supportive of the players.
If the stories about KPB walking off the pitch with teammate's after being racially abused are true,fair play to him..well done #UefaStandUp
That Prince Boatang footage from the Milan game is shocking. Shame it takes a player to do that instead of the authorities being proactive.
