FIFA president horrify at Milan/Roma racist incident


According to Punch, FIFA president Sepp Blatter was ‘’appalled’’ when he learned that AC Milan’s match against Roma was suspended because of racist chanting.

Sunday’s game was stopped for 97 seconds during the second half when visiting Roma supporters would not stop chanting at Milan players Mario Balotelli and Kevin-Prince Boateng.

‘’Appalled to read about racist abuse in Serie A last night,’’ Blatter tweeted Monday. ‘’Tackling this issue is complex, but we’re committed to action, not just words.’’

Blatter added that FIFA’s taskforce against racism and discrimination is ‘’serious about devising a unified approach for FIFA’s 209 members.’’

Referee Gianluca Rocchi made the decision to suspend the match briefly after warnings issued over the stadium speaker system went unheeded. Roma captain Francesco Totti had also attempted to calm the fans to no avail.

Balotelli was born in Italy to Ghanaian immigrants and is the star forward of Italy’s national squad. Boateng was born in Germany to a German mother and a Ghanaian father and plays for Ghana’s national team.

The match at Milan’s San Siro stadium ended 0-0.

Roma general director Franco Baldini said it was uncertain whether the chants were racist.
