Javier Tebas: “We know who insulted Diakhaby and has a South American accent, it’s not Cala”

Javier Tebas, president of LaLiga.

The president of The league, Javier Tebas, has announced that they have already “identified” the Cádiz player who called ‘black shit’ to Mouctar Diakhaby in the recent game against Valencia and that he has a “South American accent”, so it’s not about Juan Cala, who was pointed out by the Valencia player himself.

“Today or tomorrow there will be more news on the Diakhaby issue. The audio, which we have obviously studied, is from 1:30 minutes after the incident occurred and the one that says the expression has a South American accent, therefore it is not Cala. We have worked a lot on all this. Someone says the expression, but that expression is not Cala. The player already know who he is and who is speaking can be identified, “Tebas explained to the press in Fuenlabrada.

The president explained how LaLiga is handling this case. “First we have looked at all the recordings that can be heard, second we have commissioned the cleaning of the sound to see everything that can be heard and thirdly we have commissioned a lip reading expert because, at the moment of the play, when Cala turns around he says something. Well, let’s see what it says, we will have to make a report, “he advanced.

The events date back to last Sunday, when Diakhaby denounced that Cala had called him a ‘shitty black man’ and left the field in protest, a gesture that his teammates followed, although a few minutes later the meeting was resumed without the French on the lawn of Ramón de Carranza.

Subsequently, Valencia firmly supported Diakhaby’s complaint, while Cala appeared before the press to deny the facts, claim that he was being the victim of a “lynching” and threaten legal action against all those who have accused him of racism. In principle, the LaLiga report is expected to clarify exactly what happened.

On the other hand, Thebes referred to the possible signing of Kylian Mbappé for Real Madrid next summer and said that “it is difficult, but not impossible.” “There can be certain exits in Real Madrid, certain changes of players … When the players reach the end of their contract and do not renew, their players try to exit them,” he said about the French forward, whose link with PSG expires in 2022.
