Full-back follows in footsteps of team-mate and walks off after kicking ball into crowd.
AC Milan defender Kevin Constant walked off the pitch during the Trofeo Tim tournament on Tuesday night after suffering racist abuse.
Having defeated Juventus on penalties in the opening game, the incident came in Milan’s second 45 minutes match of the night against newly-promoted Sassuolo.
With the two sides level at 1-1, Constant was seen to pick the ball up and kick it in the direction of the perpetrators before walking off the pitch in protest.
Daniele Bonera attempted to persuade him to carry on but was unsuccessful as Constant was replaced, while coach Massimiliano Allegri revealed that the club would deliver an official statement on the situation in due course.
Back in January, Kevin-Prince Boateng was the victim of racist chants during a friendly game at Pro Patria. The Milan midfielder similarly picked the ball up and kicked it at the guilty section of the crowd before walking off as his team-mates followed.
While the game continued last night, with Sassuolo winning 2-1, it is understood that punishments from the FIGC are likely to follow.
