A new episode of racism clouds world football. An unfortunate situation that was experienced in Spanish lands while the match between Cádiz and Valencia was being played at the Ramón de Carranza Stadium.
The French defender of the ‘Ché’ team, Mouctar Diakhaby, accused in minute 30 that he had been the victim of racist insults by the Spanish defender, Cala.
Diakhaby reported this unfortunate situation to the referee and his teammates, who they decided to leave the field of play together with the person affected in a threat of suspension, before the astonished looks of the local cast.
A historical fact on a soccer field and that shows that footballers will no longer tolerate these injustices that they receive year after year, just for having a certain skin color.
It was the same French footballer who, after having retired from the pitch, talked with his teammates and decided to play the match again. This was reported by the official Valencia Twitter account.
A return to the match that did not have the presence of the affected, who requested the substitution to his coach. In addition, it should be noted that the footballer who insulted Mouctar was replaced during the break.
The duel ended 2-1 in favor of the locals. However, the scoreboard went into the background for the world of football in Spain awaiting Cala’s explanations.
A defeat that sinks more to Valencia and it keeps it completely out of the European qualification zone, thus remaining in twelfth place in La Liga.
His next challenge will be when he faces the flaming King’s Cup champion on the following date; the Royal Society.
