The defender said he would leave football if Diakhaby's allegations were proven to be true  He also said he is being 'publicly lynched' and that he would sue Valencia chief Anil MurthyAnd on Monday they continued their hardline policy against racism by uniting as a team once more.Standing as one at training; the first-team squad, manager Javi Gracia, his coaching staff and president Anil Murthy all stood together and showed their palms of their right hand to indicate to put a stop to racism.'Today, tomorrow and always: STOP RACISM! Our full backing to @Diakhaby_5,' they tweeted alongside the picture.'We'll fight until the end to clarify what happened, defend our player and eradicate racism!' Cadiz have also released a statement on their website in which they say they are 'against all forms of racism' and have 'complete confidence in the integrity' of their squad members who are 'staunch supporters' of the fight against racism.

Valencia have staunchly backed their man and released a photo of the squad standing as one The rest of the Valencia players believe Diakhaby's version of events and showed this solidarity by walking off the pitch together.Both sets of players were given five minutes to warm up before resuming the game, while Diakhaby opted to watch on from the stands.After the game it has been reported by Carrusel Deportivo that Cala denies having said anything offensive to Diakhaby and is in a 'state of shock'.Diakhaby's teammate Jose Gaya spoke after the game and suggested that Valencia would have forfeited the game if they hadn't gone back onto the pitch.He told Spanish network Movistar: 'Diakhaby told us he heard a racist insult so we all went off the pitch.'We were told that we had to play because if we didn't they would take the three points off us and maybe we'd be docked more points. Diakhaby asked us to play on, we wouldn't have done so if he hadn't done so. He said he wasn't in the right state of mind to keep playing. He is devastated.'The Valencia players have walked off the pitch at the Carranza ????Mouctar Diakhaby was visibly angry after an altercation with Cadiz's Juan Cala, and ultimately left the pitch with his teammates following behind him pic.twitter.com/3XKvm5Y9dc— Premier Sports ???? (@PremierSportsTV) April 4, 2021 Gaya added he had heard the comment Cala made to Diakhaby, describing it as 'a very ugly insult which I won't repeat'.Cadiz coach Alvaro Cervera took Cala off at half-time, and said he did it because he was already on a booking and did not want to risk him getting sent off.The manager added also that he believed his player's denial of racial abuse. Valencia coach Javi Gracia said his player had been 'seriously insulted' and was 'quite shaken'.He added: 'Diakhaby said to us that he was not in the proper state of mind to continue to play, but he understood that we had to go back on the pitch to avoid some sort of punishment.'There has been reaction on social media to the incident with Spanish Villarreal defender Pau Torres tweeting: 'Say no to racism'.FIFPro also tweeted saying: 'The situation in the Cadiz v Valencia match today raises serious concerns. We will be monitoring the situation around the match together with our colleagues from AFE.'Whilst a lot is yet to be investigated, the notion that pressure existed towards a team that responded in collective solidarity with a teammate to continue a match under threat of sanction shows flaws in both the regulation and the response to anti-discrimination action.
