Aaron Boupendza victim of racist insults after a missed penalty


Aaron Boupendza, Gabonese international passed by Bordeaux, Pau or Tours in recent years, was the target of racist insults this Thursday during a Saudi championship meeting. While his club Al Shabab (3rd in the standings) were held in check by leaders Al Ittihad, the 26-year-old striker missed a panenka in the 89th minute, before giving up his place in stride and assisting to the home side’s winning goal in added time.

This Friday, Aaron Boupendza unveiled and deplored the racist messages he had been the target of on Twitter after the meeting. “I made a mistake. I know it and I take full responsibility for it. I’m not looking for excuses. But is it normal to receive such messages? I love this club, I give it my all. Sometimes you shine, sometimes you fall. That’s life, that’s sport. But nothing justifies racism. Never”, he wrote on his Twitter account. A scourge that continues to plague football. In recent weeks, Memphis Depay had also called for unity on his social networks to fight him, after Romelu Lukaku had been the target of racist cries in Italy.
