Dembele racially abused in Russia

Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele was among the France international players subjected to racial abuse in Russia, say reports.

The 20-year-old was the target of monkey chants from a section of the home fans as France took on Russia in a friendly on Tuesday afternoon, according to an AFP photographer.

The incidents are said to have occurred in the second half of the clash in Moscow when the Barca forward was taking successive corner kicks.

A report on Get France Football News follows up on the claims and also states that TV viewers in France heard similar chants aimed towards Paul Pogba in the second half when he was in possession.
