Infantino vows to meet racial abuse victim Muntari and work together towards the betterment of the game.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino said he intends to talk with Pescara midfielder Sulley Muntari, the victim of racist abuse in Italian football and vowed to fight racist idiots.



Muntari was booked for complaining about racist abuse during a match at Cagilari and subsequently suspended, although that sanction was later lifted. The Ghanian then walked off the field in protest in the final minutes of the game.

Infantino said on Tuesday that he intended to talk with Muntari and would give him FIFA’s full solidarity.

Infantino, who was in Bahrain for Thursday’s FIFA Congress, said that he will speak to both Tavecchio ( Italian Football Federation President ) and Muntari and they will work together to sort this matter.



In an interview to BBC Sport on Monday, Muntari said that he was treated like a criminal and he went through hell.

“I went off the field because it wasn’t right for me to be on the field while I have been racially abused. If I had this today, tomorrow or the next game I’d go off again”
