The gesture has been taken following the fracas emanating from the club's recent friendly against Pro Patria, where a number of players were the victims of racist abuse from the home crowd, including attacker Kevin-Prince Boateng.

"Tomorrow [Sunday] afternoon during the warmup before the match against Siena, Milan will wear a shirt specially designed for the occasion with an anti-racism slogan," a statement issued by the Milan giants read.

"The initiative has been strongly backed by president Silvio Berlusconi, the club and the team."

The 25-year-old has also admitted the racist abuse he suffered has made him question his future in Italy.
