Accusations of racist remarks between players during Rodez’s trip to Ajaccio

As reported by RMC, during Ajaccio’s Ligue 2 game with Rodez this weekend, Ajaccio forward Mounaïm El Idrissy accused an opponent of making racist remarks.

During the 26th minute of the game, El Idrissy asked his teammates to kick the ball out of play and informed the referee. The official stopped the game for a couple of minutes as he spoke to both captains before resuming due to what RMC described as ‘a lack of evidence.’

The 23-year-old player then posted on Twitter after the game, saying: “Today, I received racist remarks in the middle of a match from a Rodez player in Ligue 2. I sincerely hope that sanctions will be applied. This must no longer happen! Thank you all for your messages and your support.”
