Does Spain promote racism? Barca player receives tough sanctions after reacting to racist abuse

Wangue, doing well for Barcelona

By Angu Lesley,

Senegalese Moussa Wague has been handed a four-match ban in Spain after he was shown the red card for punching an opposing team S.D Ejea’s fan, who had been racially abusing him throughout the match over the weekend.

The Senegalese defender left punched the fan with all his weight when the abuse became unbearable after the fan refused giving the ball for him to restart play.

However, the 20-year-old Wague has apologized for his action on social media saying: ”I want to denounce that my actions came after being the subject of numerous and repeated insults and racist chants that should never be tolerated on a football pitch.”

The truth with racism is that it would hardly come to an end, because some racist parents pass it on to their children. 

Samuel Eto’o, Carlos Kameni and Dani Alves to name a few were all racially abused in their time in Spain. Eto’o attempted leaving the pitch but was held back, while Dani Alves and Kameni were thrown bananas.

Samuel Eto’o was also target of racial abuse

Dani Alves ate his while Kameni was just mentally traumatized. Racism is at it’s peak, and it is gaining grounds in mostly Italy and Spain. 

Analysts always appeal to world football governing body, FIFA to take tougher measures on people who think they can spoil the ‘Beautiful game’.

Wagner was one of the revelations of the the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia in which he played virtually all the matches for coach Aliou Cisse’s side. He was joint youngest goal scorer with France’s Kylian Mbappe.

The young star was roped in by Barcelona from Belgian club KAS Espen to be in Barca B side and has now been incorporated in the first team this month but he will continue to play in the B side for more experience on the “Barca style”. 

Since his arrival in November, he managed to make 10 appearances for Barcelona B in which he scored 1 goal and provided two assists, showing a cheetah-fast reactions and ice cold composure for the Barca B outfit.
