Amadou Diawara was disappointed by being sent off for reacting to alleged racist abuse in Bologna’s win over Genoa.

Luca Rossettini’s 91st-minute strike earned Roberto Donadoni’s side a 1-0 win at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.

Diawara was on a yellow card when he received a second booking for responding to apparent taunts from a section of the Genoa support during the goal celebration, something he feels was unjust.

“I was happy, like all my team-mates, for the last-minute goal in a hard-fought game,” Diawara told Bologna’s official website.

“After embracing Rossettini, I just mimed gorilla gestures as a reaction to the noises I heard come from some of the fans behind [Mattia] Perin’s goal.

“It was in no way a vulgar or offensive gesture, but a simple answer to what I considered a lack of respect towards me.

“I am very disappointed that my gesture was misunderstood, but I will learn from this in the future.”
