France striker Bafetimbi Gomis has
claimed he was victim of racial abuse from GFCO Ajaccio fans
when his Olympique Lyon team beat the third division side 4-0 in
their French Cup semi-final on Tuesday.
"After my goal, I put my hands behind my ears because I had
heard monkey noises during the game," Gomis, who was booked for
the gesture after completing the scoring, told French sports
daily L'Equipe on Wednesday. "I even had a banana thrown at me."
GFCO Ajaccio played a majority of the game with 10 men after
Anthony Colinet was shown a straight red card for a violent
tackle on Anthony Lacazette in the 38th minute.
A brawl erupted on the pitch after the incident and the game
was held up for almost five minutes.
Lyon will meet either third division side Quevilly or Stade
Rennes, who meet later on Wednesday, in the April 28
final at the Stade de France.
