Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sepp Blatter for anti-racism talks this month
AC Milan midfielder took a stand against abuse by leaving the pitch in January
The AC Milan midfielder who walked off the pitch when he recieved racial abuse will meet with Fifa President Sepp Blatter this month to discuss steps football's governing body can take to combat bigotry on the terraces.
Kevin-Prince Boateng left the pitch in January during a friendly match against Pro Patria.
His team-mates followed him off and Pro Patria were ordered to play their next game in an empty stadium.
At the time, Blatter commended the Ghanaian's "strong and courageous stand" but said leaving the field "cannot be the solution".
Boateng will visit Blatter at Fifa headquarters in Zurich on 22 March.
Speaking in Edinburgh ahead of today's International Board meeting, Blatter also revealed that Fifa will be setting up a new anti-racism task force, led by Jeffrey Webb, president of the CONCACAF federation of countries in north and central America and the Caribbean.
Blatter said he wants a "united front of the football community in our zero-tolerance policy against racism.
"It is a big, big problem also of education and understanding.
"We cannot do it alone, but we will do it because we have to kick it out of the game."
