Taunts Hurled at Bilbao Striker

Athletic Bilbao’s striker Inaki Wiliams had to endure racist abuse from an unruly crowd during the club’s La Liga opener against Sporting Gijon. The 22-year-old, born in Bilbao to a Ghanaian father and Liberian mother was targeted by a section of the Sporting fans at the El Molinon stadium. Bilbao a club that prides in fielding players only from the Basque country condemned the behaviour of the fans with a social media post, “Worse than the result has been the fact that the referee has had to halt the game during the first half after insults and racist chants directed at Inaki Williams.” The referee stopped the game for a minute due to the ‘monkey sounds’ made by the crowd in one particular stand.  
Williams is the first black player in the club’s 118-year history and joined Athletic’s youth system in 2012.
Sporting have already been punished for a similar incident in September 2008 and were fined €3,000 by the RFEF for racist and abusive chants directed at then-Getafe winger Joffre Guerron.
