My Husband Being Benched By Pescara Over Racism Protest – Muntari’s Wife

Sulley Muntari’s wife says the Pescara midfielder’s protest against racism that brought disgrace to Italian football has resulted in her husband being benched by the Serie A club.

Menaye Donkor says she is in no doubt over the reason for the Italian top-flight club leaving her husband on the bench since he decided to stand up against racists who chanted against him in the match at Cagliari.

Italy’s governing soccer body was forced by global condemnation to lift the one-match ban it imposed on Muntari after the Ghanaian walked off the pitch amid racist abuse from fans against Cagliari.

Since then Muntari has not started for his club as he was a regular starter for the club before the incident that happened in Cagliari.
