Pescara’s Sulley Muntari walked off the pitch in protest when a referee booked him after he claimed he was being racially abused during a league match.
The 32-year-old former Ghana midfielder asked Daniele Minelli to stop Sunday’s Serie A game at Cagliari.
But he was instead booked for dissent in the 89th minute, prompting the former Portsmouth and Sunderland player to leave the pitch in protest.
He angrily confronted Cagliari fans, shouting: “This is my colour.”
