When the sport continued, Diakhaby was substituted, whereas Cala remained on the pitch. Both gamers got an yellow card every.
The Valencia assertion says it was Diakhaby who requested his teammates to return to the pitch. But what an announcement it could have been if the staff stayed away. Meanwhile the alleged abuser is ready to play on unmolested.

“We offer our complete backing to Diakhaby. The player, who had received a racial insult, requested that his teammates return to the pitch,” Valencia stated in an announcement.
