Former Manchester United & Spurs striker Louis Saha questions anti-racism banana campaign [Video]
- May 2, 2014
Dani Alves has been widely praised for his irreverent reaction to the banana that was thrown at him by a Villareal fan last weekend – eating it and making no big deal.
The social media buzz that followed – teammates and compatriots uploading pictures of themselves eating bananas, turns out to have all been pre-orchestrated.
Even though Louis Saha seems to have missed that part, the former Man United (and Spurs) striker still questions the point of such a campaign, in the below interview with Football Focus.
In essence, Saha says that by laughing and making a joke about it, they’re transmitting the message that it’s not important, and that ultimately it will fail to make the right impact.
