The central defender of Valencia Mouctar Diakhaby starred in the image of the afternoon this Thursday minutes before the start of the game in Son Moix. The Franco-Guinean refused to pose with the rest of his teammates in an action against racism, where both squads held a red banner with a message promoted by LaLiga, the FEF and the CSD under the slogan ‘Racists, out of football’ . The former Lyon player stayed behind his teammates until the social act was completed.
And it is that Mouctar Diakhaby also suffered an alleged episode of racism two years ago that was left without consequences, and that refers to the clash with Juan Cala, defender of Cádiz, the Valencian player assures that he disrespected him by calling him a “black shit” and even the match stopped at the Nuevo Mirandilla. In that match in Cádiz, the defender felt helpless after little help from LaLiga to try to solve the anti-racial act. It does not seem that it was a simple oversight, since the player himself has done so as not to appear in the photo, he has even crouched down to avoid leaving the background.
This indirect message could be a message from the Guinean international against LaLiga, which now seems to be sympathetic towards racism after the episode experienced last Sunday in Mestalla against Real Madrid, where the Brazilian player Vinicius was also the victim of racist insults, but instead , the media pressure was not the same as what happened with the Valencia player two seasons ago.
