"We are in the 21st century, what happened is unacceptable," Gouano said on beIN Sport. "I wanted to make a point when I asked to stop play. We are all equal." The game at the Stade Gaston Gerard was stopped in the 78th minute when Gouano said he heard racist chants coming from the Dijon fans.
The match was eventually finished and ended in a 0-0 draw. Dijon are third from bottom, six points from the safety zone, while Amiens are seven points above them in 15th place. "Full support to our captain Prince Gouano. Racism has no place in a football stadium," Amiens said on Twitter. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Ken Ferris and Toby Davis)
