Football’s world governing body Fifa has backed Ghanaian player Sulley Muntari who was booked by a referee in an Italian Serie A match after complaining about racist abuse from opposition fans.

It is not clear exactly why the referee made the decision, but Muntari then received a second booking for leaving the pitch and has been suspended for one match.

In a statement Fifa says it “would like to express full solidarity with Muntari.

“Any form of racism on or outside the field is totally unacceptable and has no place in football.”
