Odion Ighalo Reveals How He Was Discriminated For Being Black In China


Nigerian international player, Odion Ighalo opens up on how he faced racially discrimination while playing for his team in China.

The Manchester United forward revealed an opposition player rained abuses on him while he was on the pitch playing and threatened to quit the march if such should happen again.

Ighalo who showed support in protest requesting justice for Floyd also revealed that he reported to Chinese FA regarding the abuse but nothing was done.


In his words;

If it happens to me I would report it to the referee and see what they do, but if they don’t take action about it then I’m going to walk off because it should not be done to any player or anyone in the world. 
In one game in China I got called all sorts of names and after the game, I didn’t shake his hand. I walked straight into the dressing room, I was angry, I reported it to the FA.
