Boateng hopes for a 'black Mourinho'

Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng has claimed that he hopes to see a black Mourinho  in football.

The 26-year-old addressed a United Nations delegation yesterday on the issue of racism in the game.

And the former Ghana international has admitted that he wants to see more black Coaches.

“Having greater multiculturalism and more countries involved in football would be a useful thing,” he told the BBC.

“I hope that soon there will be a Coach like Mourinho but black or a Guardiola from Pakistan.”

Boateng also commented on how he would punish players found guilty of racism.

“A racist player should be banned from their club or their national team,” he added. “Fines do not resolve anything.

“Serve a sentence would be much better.”
