Sulley Muntari banned for standing up to racial abuse

Thu May 04, 2017 9:01 pm

The committee confirmed an automatic one-match ban, saying Muntari's second yellow was for 'abandoning the pitch without the referee's permission'.
The committee described the chanting as deplorable but said it came from a part of the stadium occupied by 2,000 fans and that only around 10 were involved, not enough to warrant a punishment against the club under Serie A rules.
Meanwhile, Lazio and Inter Milan were found guilty of racist behaviour by their fans during other games and warned they would face partial stadium closures if there was a repeat.
The committee said that Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly was the target of racist chanting by Inter fans while Lazio supporters targeted AS Roma defender Antonio Rudiger.
It said that around 80 per cent of the 7,000 Inter fans in one of the upper tier sections of the San Siro aimed insults at Senegal defender Koulibaly and a similar number of fans in one section of Lazio's Curva Nord aimed insults at Germany's Rudiger.
In both cases, the tribunal ordered the sectors to be closed for one game if there was a repeat incident within the next year.

Earlier, the world players' union FIFPro had called on Serie A to rescind Muntari's first yellow card.
'We urge Italian authorities to hear Muntari's version of events, investigate why the situation was mismanaged, and take firm action to ensure this never happens again,' said FIFPro in a statement.
'Muntari was well within his rights to approach referee Daniele Minelli, as the first point of reference, to make his grievances known and seek a solution...
'Professional footballers should expect to be adequately protected by the relevant authorities.'

No matter anything that happened ,the guy should not have left the pitch . But these fans deserve more than warning. Stadium ban should have been given to the fans at least one match Stadium ban.
