Cadiz vs Valencia referee’s report on the racist incident published

The report of referee David Medie Jimenez has been published, who worked at the La Liga match Cadiz vs Valencia (2-1) where the racist incident took place.

In the first half, Valencia defender Mouctar Diakhaby walked out of the field after claiming he had been insulted by Cadiz player Juan Cala.

Valencia players also left in solidarity but returned 25 minutes later and the game was resumed.

“In the 29th minute, I interrupted the game due to a conflict between the players of the two teams.”

“Valencia player Mouctar Diakhaby, after receiving a yellow card for arguing with his opponent, told me verbatim the following: “He called me black shit” (negro de mierda), pointing at Cadiz player Juan Cala. No member of the refereeing team heard that,” the report says as per Marca.

“After a while, the Valencia players decided to leave the pitch and so the match was temporarily suspended. Both teams returned to their changing rooms.”

“After a few minutes of discussion, the Valencia representative, in the presence of the Cádiz representative, told us that they had decided to replace Mouctar Diakhaby and to continue the match. In addition, it was decided to give both teams 5 minutes to warm up to avoid injuries.”

“The game resumed after 24 minutes of stoppage time and then proceeded as normal.”
