Top Sevilla player Frederic Kanoute has admitted that he has suffered racial and religious insults from other players in the Spanish league because of his skin color and religion. Kanoute, who is from Mali and Muslim, commented in an interview with the ‘Don Balon’ magazine saying that people should not generalize Muslims. Kanoute said that he never felt that religion or skin color was an issue during his time playing for the UK, but they have become a subject of frequent insult in Sevilla.
