Milan, January 15 - A sports judge sanctioned the
fourth-tier Pro Patria team Tuesday but cleared Milan in a case
involving racist jeers against black players during a friendly
match earlier this month.
Sports judge Gianpaolo Tosel said that it was
understandable why AC Milan players, led by Kevin Prince
Boateng, walked off the field during the match at Busto Arsizio
north of Milan on January 3 due to racial abuse.
He noted that while a team is not normally permitted to
leave the field, unless ordered off by the referee, the
"essential values of sport and civility," allowed players to
make gestures of solidarity in the face of "vulgar insults".
Last week, a sports judge ruled that Pro Patria must play
their next home league game behind closed doors because of the
racist incident.
Many Pro Patria fans painted their fans black for their
team's league match to show they are not racist and express
solidarity for the black players.
