LaLiga: LaLiga fail to find evidence that Cala racially abused Diakhaby

The weekend’s controversy between Mouctar Diakhaby and Juan Cala looks set to end without a resolution, with no action likely to be taken against the Cadiz player.

Cala was alleged to have aimed racist insults at the Valencia defender, which led to Diakhaby and his Valencia teammates walking off the pitch. Los Che, without Diakhaby, did return to the pitch to finish the match.

According to Cope, LaLiga’s investigation, which has used lip-reading experts, has returned no evidence of racism. They have reported that Cala could be seen saying “s***”, “leave me alone”, and “sorry, don’t get mad”.

Audio evidence was also gathered from coverage of the game, but again no evidence of racist insults were found.

Javier Tebas had previously said that “there will be a report that will say what Cala said and another report on everything that was said, it’s clear that the audio circulating is not of Cala”.

Diario de Cadiz have reported that, without evidence to go further, Tebas and LaLiga will announce shortly that the investigation is closed without any punishment being handed to Cala.

Another case, that opened by the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), however, will remain ongoing as they continue to get to the bottom of what was said between Cala and Diakhaby.

Cala, for his part, was bullish in his press conference to address the incident, threatening legal action against Valencia.
