Barcelona star Dani Alves thought that the best way to handle racism was to eat a banana after it was thrown on the pitch during a match between Barcelona and Villarreal.

Banana throwing has been often seen in Spain where racism inside stadiums is experienced by black players, while Alves has been subjected to such treatment on multiple occasions.
Speaking after the game about why he took a bite out of the banana, Alves said: “We have suffered this in Spain for some time.
“You have to take it with a dose of humour.”
The former Sevilla defender added: “We aren’t going to change things easily.
“If you don’t give it importance, they don’t achieve their objective.”
Yeah that’s showing em!!! *sarcasm*
NO Dani you don’t have to take it with a dose of humour. How is nyamming bananas thrown on to the pitch by racists going to change anything?
I really cannot be bothered with these footballers.
I don’t even think our spineless black British footballers would go that far.
