FIRST ON CNN: Sulley Muntari 'would support player boycott in protest over racist abuse'

In an interview with CNN Sport’s Christina Macfarlane, footballer Sulley Muntari spoke out against continued racism in the game, following his own experiences playing for Pescara.

On April 30, the 32-year-old Ghanaian international left the field in protest during a match against Cagliari after being booked for complaining of being abused by a section of fans. Although later rescinded, Muntari tells CNN that he was "treated like a criminal" for his reaction.

With Muntari’s case gaining worldwide attention, he explains to MacFarlane how he feels racism can be countered in football – which includes supporting a player boycott.

Muntari on how often racial abuse takes place:
“Every game. I was sitting down [Sunday] and it was happening. There was a player playing and it was happening in the stands so how are we going to tackle this?”

Muntari on the lack of action in combatting racism:
“This isn't the first time it has happened. We talk about it and after maybe one week, two weeks it's gone. Then, maybe after a month or two later, it happens somewhere and you get calls to talk about it and then it's shut again."

Muntari on whether he is supportive of a player’s strike on the issue:
“Yeah I am – of course. And I will be number one, I will be part of it, anywhere and I’ll go.”
