The fallout over an alleged racist incident that prompted Valencia’s players to temporarily walk off the pitch at Cadiz in last weekend’s LaLiga action continued on Tuesday with both players involved standing by their stories.

Valencia’s French defender Mouctar Diakhaby accused his Cadiz opponent Juan Cala of calling him a racist slur after the pair bumped into each other following a cross in Sunday’s league match. Diakhaby became visibly emotional and confronted Cala on the pitch.EFE-EPA
