Real Madrid attacker Jose Callejon says his club’s players are often the victims of racial abuse and fears it will always be in the game.
Barcelona defender Dani Alves complained about racist insults after Wednesday’s Copa del Rey semi-final first leg at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Callejon said the Brazil international was not the only player in La Liga who had to deal with the abuse.
“Real Madrid is one of the clubs that has been on the receiving end of the most racist insults,” he said.
“It has happened to us and it is a problem that cannot be completely stamped out.
“It happened to (Kevin-Prince) Boateng in Italy and it is a matter of serious concern which we all hope will die out one day once and for all.”
FIFA president Sepp Blatter recently insisted national football associations should punish racism harshly, saying deducting points and relegating a team would be a good sanction.
