Wednesday, 3 May 2017 : The 32-year-old ex-Ghana international then walked off the pitch in protest – for which he received a second yellow card, officials have now confirmed.
He was booked for dissent after asking the referee to stop Sunday’s Serie A match against Cagliari, claiming he was being racially abused.
They added not enough fans took part in the abuse to trigger action.
The Serie A disciplinary committee agreed their actions were “deplorable” but said its guidelines meant it could not impose sanctions as only “approximately 10” supporters were involved – fewer than 1% of the Cagliari supporters in the ground,
Earlier on Tuesday, world football players’ union Fifpro had called for Muntari’s punishment to be rescinded – though it was then unaware the player had been given a second yellow card and sent off.
Boateng has since tweeted his support to Muntari, saying he is “so proud” of his former team-mate.
Meanwhile the Serie A committee warned Lazio and Inter Milan faced partial stadium closures if there was a repeat of recent racist behaviour shown by their fans.
Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly suffered abuse from Inter fans while Lazio supporters targeted Roma defender Antonio Ruediger.
