Racism row: GFA didn’t solidarise with me – Muntari
Black Stars and Pescara midfielder Sulley Muntari has disclosed that the Ghana Football Association (GFA) did not call to solidarise with him after being racially abused by fans during a Seria A clash with Cagliari.
The 32-year-old was targeted by a section of the home fans throughout the match before reporting the situation to the referee and asking that he halt the game.
However, he was booked by the referee for making the request and subsequently walked off the pitch in stoppage time, leaving Pescara to see out the match with just 10 men.
Narrating the incident Wednesday on Starr Chat with Bola Ray, Muntari said the racist chant began with a kid.
When asked whether the GFA contacted him to commiserate with him in show of solidarity, he said: “No they didn’t.”
When asked whether he was expecting them to? He said: “No I wasn’t” adding “one thing is that I am not a victim. I can handle myself. I can handle my situation. I’m not there for anyone to call and have pity for me. No. I was in, I can handle my situation and I go out of it.”
