Ex-President John Mahama backs Muntari following racial abuse

Former President of the Republic of Ghana John Dramani Mahama  has expressed his support for Sulley Muntari after suffering racial abuse.


The 32-year-old walked off the field after a section of the Caglairi fans abused him racially when he was playing for his side Pescara in a Serie A game on Sunday.

Sulley Muntari whose action has been backed by international bodies like UNO has however been suspended for a game.

John Dramani has expressed his support for his countryman for what he is going through at the moment.

The Disciplinary Commission arrived at their decision hand Muntari a one-match ban after the officials at the ground wrote in their report that the racist chants were coming from only around 10 people - less than one percent of the 2,000 people in the stadium.

They also noted it was only audible because the rest of the supporters were staging a ‘silent protest’ and therefore the decision was made not to penalise Cagliari, who escaped without even a warning or fine.
