Milan, February 1 - Prosecutors will hear
testimonies from six AC Milan players, including Kevin-Prince
Boateng, who left the field after fans from opposing team Pro
Patria directed racist jeers at black players during a January 3
friendly.
The match at Busto Arsizio north of Milan was first
interrupted and then scrapped altogether after Milan captain
Massimo Ambrosini led his teammates off the pitch.
Milan's Ghanian midfielder Boateng kicked the ball
towards fans who were directing abuse at him before the
action stopped.
M'Baye Niang, Urby Emanuelson who has just joined London
side Fulham, and Sulley Muntari were also targeted.
Italian football has been battling racism in the stands for
a number of years after several shameful high-profile incidents.
The head of the Italian soccer federation (FIGC), Giancarlo
Abete, voiced solidarity with the players and club, calling the
incident "an indecent ruckus that offends the whole of the
soccer world".
Milan captain Massimo Ambrosini testified on Monday.
Prosecutors are taking testimonies for investigations into
incitement of racial hatred and personal injury against the AC
Milan players.
