Kevin-Boateng stops an AC Milan friendly as Pro Patria fans dish out racial abuse

Published on: 03 January 2013

AC Milan midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng took an amazing stand against racism on Thursday after the Ghanaian was racially abused in a friendly match at minnows Pro Patria.

Midway through the first half, as Boateng was on the ball near the touchline, the Milan number 10 completely forget about the game at hand as he stopped playing, picke dup the ball and whacked it at a hoard of Pro Patria fans sitting in the bleachers.

According to various Italian reports, the Pro Patria fans were heard loudly racially abusing Boateng.

Incensed at the deplorable treatment he was being subjected to, Boateng then ripped off his jersey and immediately began heading off the pitch.

Within a matter of seconds, Boateng was joined by his AC Milan teammates and the Pro Patria players  as the game was brought to a dramatic halt.

    This is what is special about this Ghanaian, this is why I respect this guy. He does not do things half ass, he is about total commitment, he is about absolute conviction, he is about giving all or nothing. When he said he could not excel at Club and Country he meant it. This is why Ghana has to take note and treat this guy special. He is that good! Handle the players on a case by case basis but the team is the team. There is a difference.

    So true. He might be hard to handle, but one must admit he always fights for what he believes. Respect.
