Rome, May 13 - Joseph Blatter, the head of
international soccer's governing body FIFA, on Monday expressed
dismay at the racist abuse that led to Sunday's Serie A match
between AC Milan and AS Roma to be briefly suspended.
The match, which ended 0-0, was stopped for around 90
seconds in the second half after some Roma fans ignored warnings
there would be a suspension if they continued to direct monkey
chants at Milan's Italy forward Mario Balotelli and Ghanaian
midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng.
It was the first time officials had used the power to stop
a Serie A game due to racism from the stands in Italy.
"Appalled to read about racist abuse in Serie A last
night," Blatter said via his Twitter account, @SeppBlatter.
"Tackling this issue is complex, but we're committed to
action, not just words".
