Mouctar Diakhaby is again at the center of the controversy. Two years after making headlines, due to an alleged racist insult against him, the Guinean defender (26 years old, 4 caps, 1 goal) refused to pose with the banner “Racists, out of football”which recalls the last racist incidents that occurred in Valencia, between Vinicius Jr and the supporters.
A two-faced league?
In the photos taken shortly before kick-off, Diakhaby can be seen in the background, isolated, with his head bowed, while the other actors pose with the banner “Racists, out of football”, as part of the anti-racism campaign launched jointly by the Ministry of Sports, La Liga and the Spanish Football Federation. A gesture that would suggest that the native of Vendôme is boycotting the movement supporting Vinicius Junior, the latest victim of racism. But in reality, according to the details of the Valencian daily Superdeporte, the player passed by Lyon would demonstrate against a treatment of double standards. In fact, according to the Spanish source, it
“could be a message from the Guinean international against La Liga, which today seems to be fighting racism strongly, while in the case of the Valencia defender, they were not so interested. »
It is necessary to go to the end of the info to avoid confusion.
If Mouctar Diakhaby refused to pose in front of this banner, it is because he himself was a victim of racism 2 years ago.
That he had left the match, but that the case had been dismissed.

On April 4, 2021, on the occasion of the 29e
Padlock Ser. After an interruption of nearly 15 minutes, the match resumed without the alleged victim, who remained in tears in the locker room. The La Liga investigation ended up being dismissed, while the championship claimed to have an audio recording capable of proving the guilt of Spanish defender Juan Cala.
Mouctar Diakhaby supports Vinicius Junior
Note that, just like Demba Ba And
Didier drogbaMouctar Diakhaby lined up behind the popular momentum devoted to the cause of Vinicius Junior, shortly after the racist acts that took place in Mestalla on Sunday, during Valencia-Real Madrid.
“And yes, of course, I support Vinicius Jr. against the racial slurs he received from some supporters. And I hope that my club will do what is necessary to firmly punish those who have committed these acts. To say nothing is to be complicit”he insisted on recalling on his official Twitter account.
Y sí, por supuesto que apoyo a @vinijr contra los racist insultos que recibió de algunos aficionados. Y espero que mi club haga lo necesario para sancionar fuertemente a los que cometieron estos acts ..
no decir nada es ser cómplice
