Allegri 'saddened' by racial abuse

Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri has claimed he is 'disappointed and saddened' after his side were subjected to racist abuse in a friendly match.

The Rossoneri walked off midway through the first half in a match against Pro Patria this afternoon, after Kevin-Prince Boateng was racially abused by home supporters.

And the 45-year-old Coach has admitted that the team 'could not make any other decision'.

“We are disappointed and saddened by what has happened,” he told reporters. “Milan play for the right to respect all players.

“We need to stop these uncivilized gestures.

“We are sorry for all the other fans who came here for a beautiful day of sport.

“We promise to return, and we are sorry for the club and players of Pro Patria, but we could not make any other decision.

“I hope it can be an important signal.”
