Soccer star Dani Alves hilariously takes the high road when racist fan throws a banana at him
Brazilian defender Dani Alves has played soccer in Spain for eleven years and says he’s long dealt with racism there. As he was setting up to take a corner kick during yesterday’s road match between his Barcelona club and Villarreal, he had to deal with more.
A banana was hurled his way from the stands. His response couldn’t have been better…
To top it all off, Barcelona overcame their 2-1 deficit at the time of the banana incident to win 3-2. Alves noted after the game, “I’ve been here 11 years and I’ve been suffering this the whole time, so I just face it with humor.”
