Pro Patria fans jailed for Boateng and Muntari racist abuse

Six Pro Patria Fans Jailed For Racially Abusing Boateng And Muntari    

 Six Pro Patria fans have been handed jail sentences racially abusing Ghanaian players Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng during a friendly against AC Milan in January.

Boateng kicked the ball in anger at a section of the crowd, took off his shirt and walked off the pitch with the rest of the Rossoneri squad following him to abandon the game.

The incident attracted international attention with the United Nations inviting Boateng for a support programme while FIFA boss Sepp Blatter back the 26-year-old?s actions.

All six fans have been given jail terms between 40 days and two months.

The ANSA news agency reports that one fan received a 40-day sentence after collaborating with authorities, while the other five fans received two-month sentences.

The Italian Football Federation has also implemented new and tougher sanctions to deal with racism six months after the incidence took place.
