Muntari’s Racial Abuse
Muntari suffered disheartening racial abuse at a Seria A clash between his club Pescara and Cagliari. The 32-year-old was rudely booed at by supporters of his opponents, Cagliari at the final minutes of the match. It however, got worse when the Ghanaian was issued a red card by the referee following his calls for disciplinary actions.
The Ghanaian was subsequently, issued a one-match ban by Seria A Disciplinary Committee -a ban which was later revoked by Italian Football Federation. This was following massive protests by football bodies across the globe.
