Boateng shows "Red Card" to his former ex-chairman

Published on: 13 September 2019

Ex Schalke professional Kevin-Prince-Boateng has criticized Schalke's supervisory board chairman Clemens Tönnies for his racist comments on Africa. Tönnies earned "clearly the red card," said Boateng the "Sport Bild".

"I do not know how such things should slip out," said the 32-year-old clearly his lack of understanding for the statements of the Schalke-maker.

"There should have been a different sign, because the opportunity was there to show everyone that it would not be accepted."

Boateng played for Schalke 04 between 2013 and 2015. Before this season he hired at Fiorentina. Boating has a long been demanding a video proof against racism on the football field. Such a measure.

The German Ghanaian himself was already a victim of racism on the field. In a friendly with AC Milan, Boateng was racially abused by spectators in 2013 and sent a clear signal by leaving the field with his entire team.

Tönnies had said in a speech early at the  "Day of Crafting" that it should finance 20 power plants in Africa every year.

"Then the Africans would stop cutting down trees and they will stop producing children when it's dark." Then the 63-year-old leaves his office after strong criticism from all sides for three months rest.
