Striker, Inaki Williams, who was born to Ghanaian parents said he felt sad after he suffered racist abuse in a Spanish League game against Espanyol.
Williams, who plays for Spanish top-flight club, Athletic Bilbao, was subjected to racist chants by Espanyol ultras, who are described as hardcore supporters of the club.
The two sides drew 1-1 at the RCDE Stadium on Saturday.
CNN reports that Inaki Williams reported the matter to his captain, Iker Muniain, which players who suffer racist abuse during games are encouraged to do.
Muniain approached the referee, Jose Sanchez Martinez, on the matter but the match was allowed to continue.
The official did not mention the incident in his match report either.
Speaking to Athletic’s media team, Williams said he was saddened by the actions of the opposition fans.
