The repercussions around the episode of racism denounced by Mouctar Diakhaby, Valencia player, who claimed to have received insults from Juan Cala, footballer of Cádiz.
Everything happened last Sunday, in the duel between the two casts valid for La Liga. The squad ‘che’ even withdrew from the field at times after the episode that once again shakes European football.
This Tuesday Cala broke the silence and defended himself against the accusations, emphasizing that he never insulted the French defender in a racist way.
“I’ve never said ‘you’re a shitty nigger’ and that’s pretty clear”said the Spaniard, who added that it could all be a “strategy” of Valencia to get him out of the game.
However, according to Mundo Deportivo, there is a video of the international broadcast, which was not broadcast in Spain.
In the register you hear the words “You nigga, are you going to cry?”, while players from Cádiz and Valencia are seen trying to separate Diakhaby from Cala.
The aforementioned media detailed that “the sound and the words that are heard do not correspond to the moment of the image, but would be those that Juan Cala would have pronounced and that would have triggered all the controversy.”
