Milan's Constant leaves field after racist abuse

REGGIO EMILIA, Italy (AP) - AC Milan midfielder Kevin Constant walked off the field in anger following racist abuse, emulating the actions of Kevin-Prince Boateng last season.

The incident took place Tuesday during a 2-1 exhibition loss to host Sassuolo in the Trofeo TIM tournament, which also involves Serie A champion Juventus.

Constant, who is black, walked off the field after kicking the ball into the stands in the 34th minute. The referee allowed a substitute to come on and also ordered an announcement warning that the game would be suspended if further incidents occurred.

Following racist abuse during an exhibition game in January against Pro Patria, Boateng also kicked the ball at a section of the crowd before walking off the field with the rest of the Milan team.
