Roberts: Racism battle will be 'fought by the players'

Reading striker Jason Roberts, who last year decided not to wear a Kick It Out anti-racism t-shirt until more had been done on racism in football, has tweeted:


Congratulations to AC Milan players and Kevin Prince Boateng for walking of the Pitch due to Racist abuse...


Until the authorities take appropriate action and start taking this issue seriously, this battle will have to be fought by the players..

Boateng 'would walk-off again'

AC Milan's Kevin-Prince Boateng has vowed to walk off the field in a competitive football game if he is subjected to any more racial abuse. AC Milan left the pitch in protest after racist chants during a friendly against fourth-tier side Pro Patria.
