CELTIC DUO Odsonne Edouard and Boli Bolingoli both posted their support for a fellow professional on Sunday after Moussa Marega was subjected to alleged horrible racist chants from the stands.
Porto were away to Vitoria Guimaraes on Sunday night when the incident took place.
Margega has scored what would turn out to be the winning goal for Porto but when the chants became too much for the striker he tried to walk off the pitch.
What was disheartening was his teammates and manager trying to keep him on the field against his will. Marega was quite within his rights to leave the field and he should have been supported better by his colleagues. He was also treated to a yellow card by the referee which is absolutely crazy.
On the night, after images of Marega taking a stand against racists both Eddy and Boli posted their support on Instagram for the player.
There’s no room for these horrible incidents in the game. It’s quite disturbing to see this happen and for the player to receive little in the way of support. We hope Marega has shone a light on this problem which is not restricted to any one country. It’s a massive problem in football which shouldn’t be tolerated.
