'Leaving the field is not the solution'

FIFA President Sepp Blatter has reiterated comments he made last week regarding Kevin-Prince Boateng's stance against racism.

The Milan midfielder walked off midway through a friendly match against Pro Patria last Thursday after being subjected to racist chanting from fans.

But the 76-year-old has again claimed that leaving the field is not the answer.

“To leave the field as he did cannot be the solution to reduce racism,” The National have reported him as saying.

“We have to find another solution to put an end to this problem.

“Football has to continue to unite people, not separate them.”
