Demba Ba was the victim of racist insults during a match in the Chinese league. The former Chelsea striker reacted furiously to a comment by Zhang Li during the meeting between Shanghai Shenhua and Changchun Yatai.
The Senegalese who plays in Shanghai Shenhua seized his opponent to hit him.
After the match, Shenhua’s coach defended his player: “I learned that a Yatai player used words of insult to him. Around the world, it has been emphasized that there should not be insulting speeches against black athletes. The Chinese Super League has more and more players of different skin colors. We must respect our adversaries and there must be no discrimination. “
His club calls for serious disciplinary action against Li.
