Cadiz fans accused of racially abusing Antonio Rudiger as he tried to give supporter his shirt

Cadiz fans accused of racially abusing Antonio Rudiger as he tried to give supporter his shirt

Rudiger was attempting to give his shirt to a fan, when others decided to abuse him from the stands, with reports of racism.

Antonio Rudiger was on the receiving end of some disgusting abuse, after Real Madrid's latest victory kept them on top of the race for second in La Liga.

After whooping Chelsea 2-0 in the Santiago Bernabeu in midweek, thanks in part to Wesley Fofana reading a note whilst the hosts were scoring, Carlo Ancelotti would have had every right to rest some players ahead of the return leg.

The Italian could have been too busy still thinking about his wonderful touch against the Premier League side, but instead he chose to concentrate on the game with Cadiz, and play a pretty strong side.

Goals from Nacho and Marco Asensio secured all three points for Los Blancos, and ensured they stay ahead of Atletico Madrid in the league.

However, it was the awful behaviour of the Cadiz fans which caught the attention, when Rudiger tried to give his shirt to an away fan.

The home supporters were heard shouting "Black b*****d! Son of a b***h!" at the centre back, and you can see the incident in the video below.

Rudiger remonstrated with the home fans, before giving his shirt to a Real follower, and was then escorted away by a member of his team.

The abuse continued to rain down from the stands and the former Chelsea defender was clearly annoyed with what was being shouted at him.

Before he even gave the fan the shirt, Cadiz players were unhappy that the 30-year-old was heading over to the stands and tried to stop him.

It appears that handing over shirts isn't the done thing in Spain, as often happens in England, with a former player questioning it.

On commentary Carlos Martinez criticised the defender for "facing the stands," before asking, "What is Rudiger doing? Do you know what this is about?"

Presenter Isabel Forner then corrected him, to explain that he was simply going over to give a fan his shirt, clearly no signs from kids asking for the kit in Spain then.

It is unfortunately not the first time in recent months that a Real star has received similar abuse from rival fans, with Vinicius Junior racially abused during a game with Atletico Madrid earlier this season.

The Brazilian forward was called a 'monkey' during chants, whilst a racist doll dressed in a Real shirt was also held aloft by one fan.

It continued at the beginning of this year, ahead of another meeting of the two sides from the Spanish capital, when another doll, this time wearing a Vinicius shirt, was hung from a bridge in Madrid.
