The Franco-Guinean central defender from Valencia Mouctar Diakhaby, who two seasons ago denounced a possible racist insult by the Cádiz player Juan Cala, resigned from posing behind the banner against racism with which the players from Mallorca and the Valencian club posed before kick-off of the match they played this Thursday.
After the racist insults that Vinicius Jr suffered on Sunday in the Valencia and Real Madrid match, LaLiga and the Spanish Federation devised a joint action against racism for which the starting eleven of all the matches of this day had to pose with a banner before the start of each match.
In the Mallorcan stadium, all the players posed behind the banner with the slogan Racists, out of football, but Diakhaby stood clearly behind the group made up of footballers and referees.
Diakhaby denounced a racist insult by the Cala player last season and Valencia even withdrew from the pitch. But finally, and at the risk of losing the three points, the team returned without the French central defender and the investigation that LaLiga opened ended up being closed due to lack of evidence.
The Franco-Guinean footballer expressed his support for Vinicius on social networks this week and asked Valencia for a strong sanction for those involved but after a message from Cala in which he said that "time puts each clown in his place" in reference to That event, Diakhaby said that the Cádiz player spoke because they had "protected him very well."
