Ghanaian midfielder, Sulley Muntari appealed to the referee to stop the encounter after he was target by the Cagliari supporters.

However, the referee ignored the player's request and instead decided to book him for dissent.

Muntari then walked off the field as Pescara finished the game with 10 men, and he claims it was kids who made the racist chants.

“They were chanting against me from the start, then in the first half I saw in the group there were some children and the parents said nothing,” Muntari explained to Sky Sport Italia.

“So I turned to the parents and gave them my jersey, to set the example. In the Curva, the issue continued with another group of fans.

“I was trying to reason with them, but the referee told me to leave them alone. That’s when I got angry. Because rather than stop the game, he decided to punish me?

“The fans were wrong, but the referee had to act differently, not accuse me of causing trouble. I am the victim here. If the officials begin actually stopping games when this happens, I am convinced it won’t happen again.”
