Richarlison reacted angrily to racial taunts after scoring a goal as Brazil crushed Tunisia in a friendly in Paris.
After giving Brazil the lead for the second time as they hammered Tunisia 5-1 at Parc des Princes on Tuesday, Richarlison received abuse from spectators.
“As long as you continue to “blah blah blah” and don’t punish, it will continue like this, happening every day and in every corner. No time left, man!” he tweeted in Portuguese.
“Unfortunately… a banana was thrown on the pitch towards Richarlison, scorer of the second Brazilian goal,” the Brazilian football confederation (CBF) said on Twitter, including a photograph of the banana lying by the touchline.
“The CBF reinforces its position to combat racism and repudiates any prejudiced act.”
“Unfortunately it seems that we can’t change people’s mentality.
“I hope they will realise that this doesn’t work, it’s the past, we have to change. Unfortunately, people continue with this mentality.”
The scene for a bad-tempered match was set when the vast numbers of Tunisia fans jeered the Brazilian national anthem before kick-off.
“I was puzzled, I was saying ‘No, it’s a lack of respect’. Football is a sport that promotes inclusion,” the Coach said.
