BREAKING: Valencia players walk off pitch and denounce racism after Mouctar Diakhaby incident

Valencia’s players walked off the pitch after defender Mouctar Diakhaby appeared to accuse Cadiz’s Juan Cala of racism during Sunday’s clash in La Liga.

The players leave the pitch after the incident

Diakhaby approached Cala after a comment was aimed in his direction shortly after the half hour mark of the game, with the centre-back then approaching referee David Medie.

After a brief period off the pitch the players soon returned.

Valencia’s official club Twitter account tweeted: “No to racism.

“The team have held a meeting and decided to continue the game, in order to fight for the honour of the club, but denounce racism of any kind.”
