Seems to be a pretty big issue in Italian football. 

Aye, regular stadium closures/fines over there for fan behaviour.

I can't believe he gave Muntari a yellow for complaining :lol::lol::lol:. He'll get hauled over the coals for that.

I presume the yellow was for his reaction to ref but he is a grown man and should be above that. Not someone I would want in the trenches. Man up and let the Authorities deal with it 

Um, isn't that what he did by going to the ref?

He asked the referee to take action before going to the crowd himself and being ushered down the tunnel. 

You ever been racially abused?

I have been called an orange barsteward plenty.

I am maybe old fashioned but I want my players to ignore being called names and play the game.

I think racially abusing someone is a little more than calling them names. 

Theres a video on twitter. You can clearly hear the monkey sounds from a number of supporters and, alarmingly, eye witness accounts suggest a number of kids participating.

Shouldn't have called the ref a wop.

Lot's of folk missing the point it took a lot more balls for Muntari to make the huge personal and moral decision to walk off that park with no apparent support. rather than stay on. 

A brave gesture, and I hope he gets all the praise he deserves for setting that precedent.

Would be a great gesture of support if all the Gers fans at Sundays' Thistle game held up an anti-racism card on the 89th minute then walked out the park with our arms in the air singing "There's only one Sulley Muntari." 

Perhaps our resident Sun reporter could highlight this on the Sun website ?

If someone came into your work place and started verbally abusing you I would expect you to chin them, but if you were more sensible than that, you would probably take whichever action was most likely to allow you to go about your business free of harassment while avoiding a jail cell, no? Like having them escorted from the premises.

I have come to realise that black players can't win when it comes to racism. If you kick up a fuss about it after the match, like Evra, you get accused of "playing the race card". If you back up your white team-mate who has been accused of racism, like Ashley Cole, you get called a "choc ice" by a fellow black player. If you actually respond angrily to abuse, like that Partizan player in Serbia, and give the crowd some back in return, you get sent off. If you calmly report abuse to the referee, you get booked and your manager criticises you, along with folk on the internet. Is the only acceptable response to racism to either literally or metaphorically backheel the bananas off the pitch like John Barnes, and pretend you don't care so that white people don't have to bother about it?
