Neymar subjected to racist chanting at Espanyol 0 – Barcelona 0 (Video)

You would hope that now we are in 2016, there would be no place for this sort of thing in the modern game, but Spain has often been a little behind in challenging racism.

Last season, Barcelona visited Espanyol and were subjected to racist chanting towards Neymar, Leo Messi and Luis Suarez.

Today, during the goalless draw between the two great local rivals, Brazilian Neymar was subjected to monkey chants by the Expanyol supporters.

Quite clearly on the videos below, Espanyol fans can be heard making monkey chants as Neymar has the ball on the right wing.

After the game, Gerard Pique also made a point of talking about the racist chanting that Neymar was subjected to.

Pique: “The culprits are those who have done it, not the fans of Espanyol. If true, obviously we have to speak out and have to take appropriate measures. To identify them and point them out, one by one.”
