FIFA President Sepp Blatter has called Kevin-Prince Boateng 'courageous' after the Milan midfielder spoke at the United Nations this afternoon.
And the governing body's chief has claimed that he wants to work with the 26-year-old going forward.
“We have maintained from the start that Kevin-Prince Boateng was right to leave the field,” he told reporters.
“His gesture was symbolic and courageous. It is a warning though, not a solution.
“We hope to work with Kevin to eradicate racism once and for all.”
