Valenciennes seek replay following racism row

VALENCIENNES, France, Feb 20 (Reuters) - Valenciennes have asked for a Ligue 1 defeat by Metz to be replayed after their captain Abdeslam Ouaddou said he was racially abused.

Ouaddou, a Morocco defender, has filed a complaint with French legal authorities after the incident in last Saturday's 2-1 loss to bottom club Metz.

'I want this game to be replayed,' Valenciennes chairman Francis Decourriere told reporters on Wednesday.

'I wrote a letter to the president of the Republic, the French Olympic Committee, the Human Rights League and the Football League,' he added.

'I would also like this game to be played in front of children from Valenciennes and Metz.'

An angry 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.

The League's disciplinary committee is due to meet on Thursday to study the incident and the referee's report.
