Mumbai FC's Yusif Yakubu accuses Mohun Bagan fans of racism

Asked whether he would lodge an official complaint, Yakubu said: "Why should I? It won't be of any help. Even if Mohun Bagan are penalised, they will still somehow find a way out." I-League CEO Sunando Dhar termed it surprising and said they would have to wait for an official complaint.

Kolkata: I-League match in Kalyani in Nadia district has yet again made news for the wrong reasons as Mumbai FC forward Yusif Yakubu accused Mohun Bagan fans of shouting racial abuses and "monkey" chants.

The incident happened when Mohun Bagan bounced back in the match to level 2-2 before wrapping it up 3-2 on Wednesday as the fans allegedly hurled "racial abuses" at the Ghanian.

"It's beyond me why the fans were abusing me. There were all kinds of slangs and abusive language, some of which I can't even mention. This is racism," Yakubu said.
