Fierce racist chants were heaved heavily on Porto forward Moussa Marega in his team’s game against Vitoria Guimaraes, which necessitated him to walk off the field.

Marega, 28, started to walk towards the dugouts in the 69th minute, nine minutes after scoring what would prove the winner in Porto’s 2-1 victory.

He pointed his thumbs down and also raised his middle fingers to the crowd in a subtle response to his accusers.

Team-mates and opposition players tried to persuade him to stay on, but he was eventually substituted.

In an Instagram post, Marega said the home supporters “who come to the stadium to make racist screams” were “idiots”.
