“I Hope I Never Find You On A Football Field Again. You Are A Shame.”

The forward walked out of the pitch to the anger of his manager after a prolonged battle with his teammates who were persuading him to stay on the pitch. All efforts to stop the 28-year-old striker from leaving proved abortive as the sad scene forced the referee to stop the game for three minutes. Moussa was booked for his action and he was later substituted in the 63rd minute 

The heart-wrenching scene was compounded by Vitoria Guimarães fans throwing objects and stadium seats at the striker before he was booed out. 

The forward later went on photo and video sharing app Instagram to explain his side of his story, though not without some words for the referee who he said failed to protect him. “I also thank the referee for not defending me and for giving me a yellow card because I defend my skin colour,” The 28-year-old said after the game. 

“I hope I never find you on a football field again. You are a shame.”

Meanwhile, CSI had reported that the wild inferno of racism in Italian football seems to be getting out of hands and Brescia striker Mario Balotelli was the recent victim. The former Liverpool star was in action for Brescia against Hellas Verona on Sunday, November 3 when a section of the fans subjected him to racist slurs. 28-year-old the Italian was prompted to stage a field protest, forcing the game to an abrupt halt in the 50th minute.
