Chievo defend ball-boy for rejecting Muntari's shirt

Published on: 11 April 2012

Chievo Verona have explained why a ball-boy reluctantly accepted Sulley Muntari's Milan shirt at the end of Tuesday's Serie A match.

The child tried to hand the jersey back to the midfielder [see video of incident] at the end of last night’s 1-0 Rossoneri victory at the Stadio Bentegodi.

Amid suggestions that the youngster didn’t want it – or that he was indeed an Inter or Juventus fan – the club have issued a clarification statement.

The Flying Donkeys have made it known that it is club policy for the ball-boys to not disturb players at the end of 90 minutes by asking for their jerseys.

Chievo went on to reveal that the kid, part of the club’s youth system, is actually a Milan fan. He’s now been allowed to keep the memento.

Muntari scored the only goal of the game with a long-range missile of a strike.
