Sulley Muntari has got the backing of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), after walking off the pitch in protest against racial chants towards him by fans of Cagliari.

Pescara midfielder Muntari, 32, was banned after he protested against racist abuse he received from the crowd during Sunday's Serie A match at Cagliari, which earned him a yellow card for dissent before he walked off.

A Serie A disciplinary committee upheld his punishment but said it could not punish the fans as only "approximately 10" were involved in the racist chants - not enough to trigger action under its own guidelines.

The GFA has been accused of failing to come to Sulley Muntari's defence following the racial attack and subsequently suffering a game ban for walking off the field.

However,  the FA through its official twitter handle has revealed it had made contact with the player and were in serious discussions with the right authorities to find an amicable solution to racism.

"Ghana FA official has been in touch with Ghana 's Muntari of Pescara Calcio since his racist abuse by some Cagliari Calcio fans," the Tweet reads.

Sulley Muntari was part of the Black Stars team that played in the 2006, 2010 and 2014.
