There is no evidence or any serious suggestion that I’ve read or heard which indicates that this was racially motivated, it simply appears that a certain percentage of Besiktas fans are just horrible bastards (male and female). Emmanuel Eboue may not have been the best loved player during his time at Arsenal but surely nobody wants to see a player suffer this kind of treatment for simply playing a game of football. Not even Ashley Cole. Okay maybe Ashley Cole a little. Nothing too sharp though.
However because they weren’t throwing bananas at him and making monkey noises, little is likely to be done. Look how disinterested the referee is. It’s not just racist abuse which shouldn’t be tolerated and when you do nothing about players being pelted with coins and lighters, it’s only a matter of time before someone takes it a step further.
