Italian FA Overturns Muntari Match Ban

Italian FA Overturns Muntari Match BanThe Italian Football Federation on Friday lifted the one-match ban on Pescara’s Sulley Muntari.

The Italian football body said the decision was taken after it considered the “particular delicacy” of the case.

He was initially booked for dissent, after complaining of racial abuse from the crowd and walking off the field during last Sunday’s 1-0 Serie A defeat to Cagliari.

An anti-racism organisation, Kick It Out had urged black players to boycott the weekend matches in Italy, unless football authorities withdraw the match ban imposed on the Ghanaian midfielder.

The 32-year-old former Portsmouth and Sunderland player will now be available for Pescara’s home game against Crotone on Sunday.
