Valenciennes captain in fans racism row

PARIS, Feb 17 (Reuters) - Valenciennes captain Abdeslam Ouaddou has filed a legal complaint after being racially abused by a fan during a Ligue 1 match at Metz on Saturday, his club said. A furious Ouaddou walked towards the stands at halftime to remonstrate with a Metz spectator who had repeatedly insulted him, Valenciennes said in a statement on Sunday. He was forced back to the pitch by stewards and received a yellow card. The Morocco defender filed a complaint immediately after the match. 'The club supports Abdes in this ordeal,' the statement read. 'Such insults should never take place, in a stadium or elsewhere.' The 38-year-old supporter, whose identity was not revealed, was being questioned by police, Metz club sources said. 'The words were very strong,' Ouaddou told reporters after the match. 'I told the referee about it but he told me to concentrate on the match. The insults continued so I walked towards that person. I wanted an explanation.' Metz said they had also filed a complaint and the French Professional Football League (LFP) said it would do as well. Bottom club Metz won the match 2-1.
