DIARRA: "IF THEY SAY BLACK, I SAY WHITE"

MILAN - Inter Primavera's Ivorian midfielder Abdoulaie Diarra offered his opinions on racism this morning during a convention at a Milanese school. Diarra, who has been in Italy with his family since the age of 14, said: "I live with my team-mates in a small villa in Milan. We're all together - me, Andreolli, Boumsong. We laugh, we tell each other stories, for us racism doesn't exist because we quite simply don't know it. I don't know why God made me with black skin and you with white skin, but I don't feel any difference and I wouldn't even want them to suspend matches for racist chants. I would prefer to continue and play because those people have no importance for me. Whoever links Inter to racism has understood nothing."

Milly Moratti also spoke at the convention, underlining that the Inter Campus Worldwide project reflects the club's precise will to unite different cultures.
