AC Milan have responded to FIFA president Sepp Blatter's criticism of their stand against racism.
Kevin-Prince Boateng and Milan were applauded around Italy and Europe for walking off the pitch against Pro Patria last week due to racist abuse.
But Blatter insisted Boateng was wrong to "run away" from the insults.
"AC Milan reaffirm its dissent towards all forms of racism, however they are manifested," read club a statement released this evening.
"We invite the national and international sporting authorities to adopt and apply every rule against racism."
