Vinicius scandal: The incredible reaction of a former Ligue 1 player

While Spain is trying to toughen its tone against the new racist episode that Vinicius Jr suffered last weekend, Mouctar Diakhaby has decided not to appear next to a sign that calls for the fight against racism . The former OL central defender, now in Valencia, wants more concrete measures to deal with this discrimination.

In a general climate of revolt after the new insults, of a discriminatory nature, suffered by Vinicius JuniorI‘Spain sees his campaign against racism not gaining unanimous support. The case Vinicius must unfortunately bring back terrible memories to the 26-year-old player, Mouctar Diakhabysince he had faced racial slurs in 2021.

He disassociates himself from the campaign

Just before the start of the meeting between Valence And Majorca, Mouctar Diakhaby preferred to stay back while all the players had positioned themselves behind this sign displaying: ” Racists, out of football “. A message that should not stop in the middle of football but to society in general. Racism is, as a reminder, not an opinion but a crime. The platform where the excesses took place has been suspended, but the individual sanction should probably take precedence in these cases. The number of cameras in a stadium in 2023 should make it possible to identify each person.

Already a victim of racism in Spain

The decision of the former player of theOL elicited many reactions. The Guinean international said he suffered, on April 4, 2021 during a match between Cadiz And Valence, racist remarks from the mouth of Juan Caladefender of Cadiz. Mouctar Diakhaby had then decided to leave the field after hearing shameful remarks by the opposing player. A situation that had traumatized him according to his words. The many slogans in recent years to fight against these horrors are not enough, Diakhaby wants something concrete.
