Williams, blunt against racism: “If it happened again, Athletic would leave the field”

Iñaki Williams has slammed the racism in the Valdano Universe that will air this Tuesday in #Vamos. The Athletic striker has narrated how he lived the insults uttered by a group of fans in Cornellá in the match against Espanyol and has confirmed that neither he nor his teammates will tolerate another episode like this.

I know that my classmates would have left the field with me because we talked about itor. We are aware that if it happened to us we would leave the countryside and if they give us the game for lost, it would give us exactly the same because it would be a punch to racism“, explains Williams in an advance spread by Movistar +.

In addition, he expressed with frustration the racist episode that he had to live: “In the 21st century you should not allow it. No matter the skin color, race, sex. Any type of vexation should not be allowed in football. I hope it does not happen again, but I know that I would have the support of many people like it happened in Tenerife or how a thousand messages rained on social networks“.
