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.
