The scene was surreal. After scoring the goal in the 2-1 victory of his team (60 th ), Moussa Marega celebrated with a black seats satde which was launched him from the stands, a move that earned him a yellow card.
Then, furious after the racist chants and the monkey cries he heard, the 28-year-old decided to leave the field in the 71st minute of the match.
His teammates, some opposing team players and even his coach Sergio Conceiçao failed to stop him. He was eventually replaced by Wilson Manafa.
On his Instagram account, the Malian international striker, born in France, expressed his dissatisfaction. “I would just say to these idiots who come to the stadium to make racist cries … are you going to fuck.” And I also thank the referees for not protecting me and for giving me a yellow card because I defend my skin color. I hope I will never see you again on a football field! You are a shame! “
Porto also made their feelings clear after the match. “We are completely outraged by what has happened. We know the passion that exists at Vitoria and I think that most fans do not recognize themselves in the attitude of certain people who insulted Moussa from the warm-up. We are a family, regardless of nationality, skin or hair color. We are all human, we deserve respect. What has happened here is lamentable, ” Sergio Conceiçao wrote on Twitter.
