Krépin Diatta is not new to the ears and eyes of many members of the public across Africa. He is the Senegalese Player who made headlines sometimes back due to his talented striking skills and his facial appearance which saw him being insulted and mocked as “ugly”.
This outstanding Senegalese striker became popular back in 2019 during the Senegal Vs Tanzania game.
Krépin Diatta’s facial appearance made him get insults and mockery even from fellow African Nationals.
Imagine an African calling out another for being too black or rather ‘ugly’, is that not racism taken to different heights?
After the incident, he was even quoted saying,
“I am Very sad to see some African brothers making fun of me. I work for our beautiful and dear African continent and what I receive in return are only insults, mockery of my brothers. This is too bad of you and racism comes from there….”
On 21 January 2021, Diatta joined Ligue 1 side Monaco in a deal running until 2025
