Il Console del Ghana in Italia con il calciatore Sulley Muntari

On the Muntari Case, H. Consul Colasuonno Taricone thanks Tavecchio and Malago for overturning the disqualification.

“I want to personally thank President Carlo Tavecchio and President Giovanni Malagò, who have given us a strong example of how sensitive and attentive Italian institutions are to problems arising from racism.” The Ghanaian Consul in Italy Massimiliano Colasuonno Taricone commented on the decision of the Federcalcio’s sporting court of appeal to cancel the one day suspension given to Sulley Muntari from Serie A sports after the Ghanaian midfielder in Pescara had been the subject of racist chants by some Cagliari fans which led to him being expelled after protesting with the referee for not stopping the match.

In recent days, the diplomat intervened with a letter sent to FGCI President Carlo Tavecchio and the president of CONI Malagò to demand that the punishment given to the disfavor of the Ghana player is withdrawn.

Colasuonno Taricone expresses satisfaction for the outcome and is said to be ready to accept the invitation offered by Tavecchio during press releases to create and participate in concrete projects that that will serve to overcome every racial barrier. “We will meet soon enough to discuss it,” says the Ghana Consul.
