Chris Samba: It’s sad that this happened in front of the kids
Anzhi Makhachkala defender Christopher Samba expressed his dismay at the incident, which happened during his side’s defeat to Lokomotiv, when a crowd member threw a banana at him.
«I try not to think about racism. I’d like to believe that it’s an isolated incident. I don’t want to react to it,» Samba was quoted as saying by the Anzhi press-office.
Earlier the Congolese stopper, who moved to Makhachkala from Blackburn this winter, commented on the incident in an interview to Sport-Express:
«It saddens me that this happened right in front of the kids sitting nearby. It’s just a bad example for them.»
