Sinama-Pongolle saddened by racist abuse at Atletico

MADRID -- Racist abuse from Atletico Madrid fans was upsetting and disappointing, French striker Florent Sinama-Pongolle said after Recreativo Huelva's 3-0 defeat at the Calderon.

"I just don't understand that there are still people that go to football matches to insult people of another race," he said after Saturday's match.

"Atletico were rightful winners but I was upset by the racist abuse that you could hear from part of the crowd at the Calderon. It isn't right," said the former Liverpool player who has been linked with a move to Atletico.

Referee Miguel Angel Perez Lasa noted the incident in his match report, saying the crowd had made monkey noises when the player came near the stands. He ordered the match delegate to issue a warning on the public address system and said the noises then stopped.

Atletico have received a number of fines because of similar incidents at the Calderon in recent seasons.

Racism remains a problem in Spanish football with Albacete B's Belgian youth international Ritchie Kitoko reporting an incident of racist abuse from a rival player to the police at the end of last month.
