Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng has advocated the use of video technology to aid in banning racist supporters from matches. Video technology is now in use in the German Bundesliga, with the implementation of goals line technology and most recently, the VAR.
However, Boateng has expressed his disappointment over the lack of progress in the identification of racism in the stands, a situation which he feels could now be corrected easily.
“We are in the year 2017 and we have still not found a way to do it,” he told Focus.
“We have goal-line technology and video evidence that says [against Wolfsburg in August] that Boateng was offside and the penalty was not given.
“But why do we not use the technology so that every racist is identified, kicked out and never returned to the stadium?”
Boateng who had to endure racist chants in his time at AC Milan in the Serie A went on to add:
“There are incidents in every new season. It just cannot happen.”
