Juan Cala takes the floor

The player assures that "the presumption of innocence does not exist in this country apparently". Diakhaby accuses him of proffering racist insults during the Cádiz-Valencia.


The Cádiz CF player Juan Cala will appear this Tuesday at a press conference after his team's training to give his version of the incident with the French Valencia player, Mouctar Diakhaby, who reported being the object of the "shitty black" insult during the match this Sunday at Ramón de Carranza, who was detained for half an hour.

"Juan Cala will appear this Tuesday at a press conference at the conclusion of the training session in the sports city," Cádiz announced through his social networks a day after his coach, Álvaro Cervera, assured that his player " at no time did he insult "Diakhaby.

The player has stated in the GOL microphones that he does not intend to hide and that tomorrow he will tell his version of the events: "I am very calm, tomorrow I will speak at a press conference, I am not going to hide." In addition, after the comments arising from the discussion generated between him and Diakhaby, the central Cadiz asks that, until there is evidence, he is not charged, "The presumption of innocence does not exist in this country apparently." Tomorrow one of the main parties will speak to tell his version of events, which we have not yet been able to listen to on the recommendation of the Cadista club, according to the footballer himself.So were the facts

Medié Jiménez collected in his minutes after the match on day 29 of LaLiga Santander that Diakhaby, when he was reprimanded in a brawl, accused Cala of having called him "black shit. However, the serious racist insult "was not perceived by any member of the refereeing team", while Valencia decided to leave the pitch following the French player.

Everything happened within half an hour of the match at Carranza, with 1-1 on the scoreboard. Without the ball in between, suddenly both players got into an argument that was accumulating players and with Diakhaby more fired than anyone. From Paulista's mouth it was possible to understand that "shitty black man", while he accompanied the Frenchman in his decision to leave the pitch.

After half an hour of uncertainty, Valencia was the first to react officially and to point to a racist incident. "The team has met and decides to return to fight for the shield but firm in condemning racism in all of Valencia in all its forms. No racism," wrote the box 'che' on his official Twitter account, right in the time of resumption.

"Our full support for Diakhaby. The player, who has received a racist insult, has asked his teammates to return to the field to fight," added the Valencian team in another message. At the end of the game, the captain of Valencia, José Luis Gayá, confirmed the version of his partner and explained the return to the field.

"Diakhaby told us that he had insulted him, a very ugly racist insult, we condemned that and went with him. Then they told us that we could lose all three points or even more and Diakhaby asked us to leave, but he was sunk in the locker room, "he said in statements to Movistar Plus after the defeat 2-1.

"Cala denied the insult"

For its part, Cádiz did not refer to what happened until the game ended. As soon as he finished, Marcos Mauro said he did not know what had happened, although he defined Cala as "a great professional and a" respectful person "and the coach, Álvaro Cervera, said at a press conference that Cala had denied him any insult.In addition, Cádiz released an official statement on its website, "against any situation of racism or xenophobia, whoever the author is." "We do not doubt the honesty of all the members of our squad, who are strong defenders of the fight against racism, whose attitude has always been exemplary," said the club.
