Trabzonspor midfielder John Obi Mikel has taken to social media to respond to the racist abuse he suffered after Saturday’s Turkish Super Lig match.
The 32-year-old was subjected to racist abuse on social media after helping his team defeat Fenerbahce 2-1, a result which moved Huseyin Cimsir’s side to third in the league table and a point above their rivals.
On Monday, Trabzonspor announced that they have filed a criminal complaint in reaction to the abuse suffered by the Nigerian midfielder.
Meanwhile, Mikel has urged fans to stop the inhumane act, adding that “it is just a game at the end of the day”.
“We are all one and equal. It’s just a game at the end of the day.#saynotoracism,” he tweeted.
