Blatter wants better racism solutions

FIFA president Sepp Blatter feels better solutions must be found to fight racism.

Blatter believes Kevin-Prince Boateng’s decision to walk off the field of play in the 26th minute of AC Milan’s friendly against Pro Patria on Thursday would not benefit anyone long term.

Although Blatter appreciated the bravery from Boateng, the FIFA president believes there must be some other way to deal with the issue.

“If a player walks off the pitch because he has been racially abused just as the Milan player Kevin-Prince Boating did, it is a strong and courageous signal,” Blatter told reporters.

“This has now gone too far and it must not go further, but it cannot be the solution in the long term. We have to find other sustainable solutions to tackle the problem of racism and discrimination at its route.

“Football must not separate people, football must bring people together.”
