Boateng to address UN on racism

Kevin-Prince Boateng will speak to the United Nations tomorrow to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

The Milan midfielder was invited to the event after he walked off the pitch in protest at racist abuse from a small group of hooligans during a friendly against Lega Pro side Pro Patria on January 3.

The trial is still on-going and several members of the Milan squad that day have been to Busto Arsizio to testify, including Boateng and Coach Massimiliano Allegri.

Boateng will make a speech at the National Building in Geneva and meet with FIFA President Sepp Blatter, who had criticised his decision to walk off the field.

Juventus will also mark the day by offering scholarships at the Juventus Soccer School in Vinovo, Turin.
