Players must stand up to racists - Wenger
15 March 2013, 18:10
London - Players who suffer racist abuse during matches should not walk off the pitch, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said on Friday, after Tottenham Hotspur's Europa League game at Inter Milan was marred by abusive chanting.
In the latest in a string of incidents involving Italian clubs, Spurs' Togolese forward Emmanuel Adebayor was apparently targeted by monkey chants during Thursday's match at the San Siro, prompting coach Andre Villas-Boas to speak out.
But Wenger warned players against following the example of AC Milan's Kevin-Prince Boateng, despite the midfielder winning praise for walking off the pitch after similar abuse in a friendly game earlier this year.
