Valencia Players walk off pitch after alleged racism in cadiz

Valencia players walk off the pitch after alleged racism in cadiz match

Valencia’s La Liga game at CadiZ was temporarily halted after valencia walked off the pitch in protest after alleged racist abuse of one of their players.

The incident occured just before the half-hour mark after valencia’s Mouctar Diakhaby collided with Juan Cala as Cadiz launched a freekick into the valencia box.

The French defender was visibly angry and after a verbal exchange in which he had to be held back by teammate Kelvin Gameiro and Cadiz’s Fali, he was shown a yellow card for unsportsmanlike conduct.

After speaking to the referee further to explain the reason for his outburst, the player walked off the pitch and down to the tunnel alongside his teammates with the game poised at 1 – 1. After 20 minutes the game was restarted when valencia players returned to the pitch to continue the match.
