Taison of Shakhtar Donetsk expelled after reacting to alleged racism

The Shakhtar said that Taison was in tears after the alleged abuse

Brazilian midfielder Taison was ruled out after reacting to accusations of racist violence during Shakhtar Donetsk's 1-0 home win against Dynamo Kyiv.

Taison, 31, made a gesture to Dynamo fans and threw them the ball before the referee pulled the players out of the field in the 77th minute.

When they came back five minutes later, Taison received a red card.

Shakhtar said Taison and his countryman Dentinho were targeted and that Dynamo supporters have been warned twice.
