AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng has vowed to walk off the field in a competitive football game if he is subjected to any more racial abuse.
The 25-year-old Ghanaian international made world news after storming off the pitch with his teammates during the Italian club's friendly match yesterday, in protest at repeated racial abuse from the stands.
"I don't care what game it is - a friendly, Italian league or Champions League match - I would walk off again," he told CNN today, while calling for life bans for fans who racially abuse players. "If there is a racism those people should be banned from the stadium forever."
The former Premier League player and his teammates received wide praise in the game for their response to the taunts, though former Milan star Clarence Seedorf warned the action may encourage more dissent from fans.
