Sulley Muntari: ‘I’d walk off again if I was abused’

Ghanaian midfielder Sulley Muntari says he would walk off the pitch again, adding that Fifa and Uefa are “not taking racism seriously”.

Muntari was initially banned for one game after asking referee Daniele Minelli to stop the Italian top-flight game at Cagliari on 30 April. The ex-Ghana international was instead booked for dissent in the 89th minute, prompting him to leave the pitch in protest, and he then received another yellow card.

He angrily confronted Cagliari fans on his way down the tunnel, shouting: “This is my colour.”

Muntari had the one-match ban overturned after the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) said it had considered the “particular delicacy” of the case.

He says he would walk off the pitch again if he was racially abused and he has urged other players to do the same.

“If I had this problem today, tomorrow or the next game I would go off again,” he said.

“And I’d recommend it to others. If they are not feeling it they should walk off.”
