Pro Patria punished for Boateng abuse

Pro Patria will be forced to play one match behind closed doors as punishment for the racist abuse directed at Kevin-Prince Boateng during last week\’s friendly against AC Milan.

The midfielder walked off the pitch in protest to the abuse coming from the stands and was followed by both his team-mates and club officials who backed his decision and abandoned the game.

On Tuesday, the Disciplinary Committee announced that the fourth tier side would receive the one-game ban for the incident and be made to play their home game in the Lega Pro Seconda Division with their stadium closed to fans.

The ruling, which went on to state that the club would receive a harsher punishment should similar behaviour be witnessed in the future, was published on the official FIGC website.

The statement read: \”These are not to be considered justification of course but can be seen as attenuating circumstances when working out punishment. This sanction for incidents of this nature is not only punishment, but also a preventative measure to avoid a repeat incident.

\”In the current season, Pro Patria had already been fined €5,000 for incidents of this nature and has proved to be inefficient.\”
