In a recent tweet, Yannick Bolasie confirmed that he turned down the possibility of a move to Russian side CSKA Moscow due to the active racism issue that seems to be present amongst fans in the country’s top tier. Everton had agreed to a deal that would see Yannick make the transition over to Moscow on a one year loan deal basis, with the potential for a permanent deal next summer also being featured. Alas, Bolasie has suggested that he turned down the offer after seeing the kind of treatment that Malcom had received when he was met with racist signs that noted: “the absence of black players is an important tradition”.
Prior to the transfer window closing Bolasie made it known that he wasn’t interested in the switch, saying “Nah g not on that Malcom treatment” when responding to someone that asked whether or not a move to CSKA was on the cards.
Instead he wound up joining Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon on a similar season long loan deal.
