Botafogo's Seedorf questions AC Milan walk-off

Botafogo midfielder Clarence Seedorf was unimpressed by his former teammates at AC Milan walking off over racist chants against Pro Patria.

While the Diavolo have been widely praised for hitting back at the racists, Seedorf is not convinced that was the best response.

"Milan were wrong to leave the field of play," the Botafogo midfielder is quoted as saying. "In doing so they gave space to these people who have racist behaviour.

"They should just be identified and kicked out of the stadium. Leave the 90 per cent that were enjoying the match and finish the game.

"If Boateng was able to identify the whole corner, you just kick the whole corner out - that is how I think it should be handled.

"Walking away? Yes, you send a signal. But this has happened more than once and I don't think it really changes all that much.

"We are just empowering that little group with their behaviour to make this mess."
