Senegalese Player, Krepin Diatta, lashed out at people, especially Africans, who mocked his physical look during the past African Cup.

Krépin Diatta is a Senegalese professional footballer who plays as a winger for Ligue 1 club AS Monaco and the Senegal national team.

This is what he had to say on social media:

“I am very sad to see some African brothers making fun of me. I work for our beautiful and dear African continent and what I receive in return are only insults, mockery of my brothers. This is too bad of you and racism comes from there. I need your encouragement and not your insults. Thank you to everyone who supports me. Only God makes my strength and I am proud of my physical person. Your mockery won’t change anything in my life. But one thing is for sure, we are all Africans.

In March 2019 Diatta was one of four young Senegalese players to receive a debut call-up to the national team. On 23 March 2019, he made his national team debut in a 2–0 win against Madagascar in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. On 13 June 2019, he was named in Senegal’s 23-man squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
