Vitoria Guimarães were entertaining FC Porto whose striker Moussa Marega, scorer of what turned out to be the winning goal, was the subject of racist abuse from the home supporters and refused to play on. As he stormed off the pitch, his Porto teammates and manager Sérgio Conceição, as well as the Guimarães players, tried to persuade him to change his mind. They might have done better to have supported him and left the field in an act of solidarity against the insidious racist chants that have no place in today’s society. Marega was resolute in his decision, however, and ended up being substituted. (The Portugal News 21 Feb 2020)
