The racist Villarreal fan who threw a banana at Barcelona’s Dani Alves released on charges after arrest
- May 1, 2014
The racist Villarreal fan who abused Barcelona’s Dani Alves last weekend by throwing a banana at him as he took a corner has been released on charges after being arrested.
Identified only as ‘David’, the, now former, socio provoked outrage last weekend when he aimed a banana in the direction of Brazilian full-back Dani Alves.
Alves has been thoroughly commended for the way he dealt with the abuse, picking up the banana and taking a bite out of it before tossing it away.
Widespread support from football and beyond has come for the former Sevilla player, with Villarreal also quickly banning the racist fan from their ground for life.
David’s friends have jumped to his defence in what they consider a disproportionate condemnation, claiming everyone makes stupid mistakes.
They’ve even organized a rally tomorrow with the slogan ‘We are all David’, a reference to the ‘We are all monkeys’ slogan used by those defending Alves.
