NOT THE FIRST OCCASION THAT SUPPORTS

On December 8, the player showed his support for Pierre Webó, assistant to Turkish Besaksahir, who claimed to have received a racist insult from the fourth official in the match against PSG for the UEFA Champions League.
The tricolor player joined a campaign promoted by the Professional Footballers Union of England and Wales in April 2019. The aim of this campaign was to fight racism. “I am a black Ecuadorian soccer player. It was not easy for me to be in a world where certain people discriminate. I am here asking for equality for all and against all discrimination. The easy way out is to look down on different people. The correct way out is not to discriminate & rdquor ;, Valencia said at the time.
