Valencia midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia encourages players “to walk away” if they are victims of racism and the former Inter player revealed things are better in Spain.
The French star is back in Milan ahead of Valencia’s game against Atalanta in the last 16 of the Champions League.
The first leg takes place at his old home ground and he has revealed that he “suffered several episodes” of racism during his stay in Italy.
“In Spain I haven’t suffered anything, in Italy I did, several episodes,” he told the Gazzetta dello Sport. “We keep saying that we have to do something, but nothing happens.
“It’s a matter of self-respect, the victims of racism must respect each other. If you are in a stadium where people don’t want you, you walk away, end of discussion.
“Don’t play and that’s OK, they don’t want to see you play for them.”
Kondogbia played 56 times during his two years at Inter and contributed two goals and three assists in the processand also claimed he had “turned into a man at Inter”.
