LaLiga: Diakhaby to the referee: Cala called me a shitty black

The referee in charge of Valencia’s match against Cadiz on Sunday, David Medie Jimenez, has released his written report for the game.

The match was halted in the first half after Mouctar Diakhaby alleged that Juan Cala had racially abused him. On the back of the incident, Valencia walked off the pitch.

The game restarted later, when Valencia had agreed to play on, while Diakhaby was substituted for Hugo Guillamon.

“In the 29th minute, I interrupted the match because of a confrontation between players of both teams,” reads Medie Jimenez‘s report.

“Player No.12 of Valencia, Mouctar Diakhaby, after being shown a yellow card for arguing with an opponent, told me word for word ‘he called me shitty black’ in reference to player No.16 of Cadiz, Juan Torres Ruiz.

“This was not heard by any of the members of the officiating team.

“After a few moments, Valencia decided to leave the field of play. For this reason, the match was temporarily suspended. Both teams returned to their respective dressing rooms.

“After some minutes of suspension, the Valencia delegate, David Rangel Pastor, in the presence of the Cadiz delegate, Antonio Navarrete Reyes, told us that they had decided to substitute player No.12, Mouctar Diakhaby, and continue with the match.

“Furthermore, it was agreed that five minutes of warming-up would be given to both teams with the goal of avoiding injuries.

“The game restarted 24 minutes after it was stopped, developing as normal from this point onwards.”
