Diop: "Part of the Atleti support began doing monkey chants"

Logotipo de AS AS 04/05/2014

Atlético Madrid’s defeat at the Ciutat de Valencia ended in controversy at the final whistle when Levante’s Pape Diop responded to racist chants from the Rojiblanco support: “This has to be stopped now.”

The match finished with a corner for the home side and a confrontation between Diop and Diego Godín. The Levante man began to dance in front of a section of the 8,000 away fans and was jostled by the Atleti defender. Diop explained: “It’s an issue that has affected me a lot. I went to take a corner and part of the Atlético support began doing monkey chants. To take the heat out of the situation, I started to dance, but I didn’t insult anyone.”

“I don’t have anything against the Atlético supporters,” he continued, “because it was only a section of their support that shouted at me. I think it’s disrespectful that it happens at all stadiums. It’s a provocation. I don’t know if it can be called racism, but the monkey chanting has to be stopped now.”
