Pro Patria in new racism scandal

Pro Patria are at the centre of another racism controversy, as a youth team walked off in protest when one of their players was insulted.

The Lega Pro team shot to infamy when a friendly against Milan was abandoned because Kevin-Prince Boateng walked off in protest at repeated racist insults from a section of the crowd.

Now a game involving the Pro Patria Berretti side, a youth academy selection, has been called off amid further racist insults.

This time the insult came from one of the Pro Patria players, who abused Casale player Fabiano Riberio.

Riberio reacted angrily and was sent off for slapping his opponent.

A brawl broke out and Casale walked off in protest, urging the authorities to take action against Pro Patria.
