Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng has taken a stance against racism after his brother, AC Milan’sKevin-Prince Boateng, was subjected to abusive chants earlier this year.
The Rossoneri midfielder walked off the pitch after abusive shouts from the stands during a friendly against Pro Patria in January.
“Like this is the start of the event and we must do more.
“I’m proud to be a part of it and I’m happy to be here in Miami at this time.
“It was also a reason [I support this event], because it’s my brother and because that is why I tried my best to come here.
“We need people in a really big positions to show that it is very important and that it doesn’t happen again in the stadium, because we all love this game and it’s about respect.”
