    "I would just like to tell these idiots who come to the stadium to make racist screams ... go f*** yourself. And I also thank the referees for not defending me and for giving me a yellow card because I defend my skin color. I hope I never meet you on a football field again! YOU ARE A SHAME !!!!”

    -- French-born Malian international Moussa Marega on walking off the field minutes after scoring the winning goal for Porto in its 2-1 win at Vitoria Guimaraes, saying he was subjected to chants from fans making monkey noises. Marega, 28, received a yellow card following his goal when he appeared to respond to the chants by pointing at his skin and by picking up a seat that had been thrown on the field.
