A player from Provence accused of racism

A case of racism seizes the Pro D2. Christian Ambadiang, Nevers winger, wrote a long message on social networks to denounce the racist insults he received from a Provence Rugby player on Friday.

The second day of Pro D2 will remain one of the highlights of this rugby weekend. Not for sporting reasons but for the racist insults allegedly suffered by the Nevers winger, Christian Ambadiang (22), on the lawn of Provence Rugby on Friday. The day after the Aix victory (26-23), the Cameroonian player published a long message on Instagram to denounce the discriminatory remarks of an opponent against him. ” ‘I’m going to burn you, banana eater’, these are the words that were expressed to me by a player from Provence Rugby during the match last night. And for him to tell me later that it was in the heat of the moment, ”he reveals. Several dozen lines of text in which he sends a serious message to rugby authorities, in order to make things happen.

Expected sanctions

“The worst part is that the people (the referees) who are supposed to be on the lookout for this kind of behavior tend to turn a blind eye,” insists Ambadiang. The latter does not see himself as “a big social media personality”, he hoped that his message “will reach the right people”. To do this, he mentioned in his text the official account of the National Rugby League (LNR) and the Pro D2. And these accusations are already reacting since Provence Rugby published a press release at the beginning of the afternoon to condemn the behavior of his player, whose identity is not revealed. “Despite the apologies of the latter (the player of Provence Rugby), and his irreproachable behavior since his arrival at the club, this is unacceptable. The club management will now meet with his player and put in place sanctions commensurate with the gravity of the facts. Christian Ambadiang wanted to be heard, it is done.
