    Not really.The chances you get to abused in Russia are a lot bigger than being mugged at night.I remember André Bikey said that he had to carry a gun to protect himself in Russia the way some assholes were targeting black players.
    Racism is embroiled in Russian football, you're sure to be abused if you're black.
    Wearing skimpy clothes again isn't a guarantee that you'll get raped but playing as a black player is a guarantee that you'll get abused racially.

    Don't kid yourself about it.When he made the decision to play for Congo, if he was good enough to play for France he'd have done so.Not that long ago there was an interesting documentary before the ACN regarding France born african players who opted to play for the country of their parents.
    Cheikh M'Bengue from Toulouse that most africans who were in his situation (born and educated in France) who choose to play for their mother country do it because out of his necessity to play international football.
    He even said that they usually give the PR answers to the media about how 'it's an honor for them to play for their mother country ..'

    I know French football pretty well, actually...And I know what you are alluding to which is true for a lot of French footballers of African origin wrt Les Bleus

    Samba, however, is not one of them...His story is unique

    Tbh I don't know his story well and I might have made an assumption based on a something true.I'm a very cynical person so when I see an african player who chose to play for his mother country, I'm in a automatic skeptical mode.I know I shouldn't be thinking like that but ...

    I understand...It's actually what makes French football interesting, from my perspective...It's a multicultural society but integration is still a problem that is reflected in the football as well

    Is it just me or is it everyone who signs for a club for the money always claims it was 'a great project'.

    I'd love to see a player come out and say they made the move for the massive amounts of cash.

    Assou-Ekotto said as much didn't he. That he only played football because it pays so great and he moved from France or something to Tottenham to play there and get better pay like you probably would do in any other job.

    Probably is a great project from his perspective tbf. Working with Eto'o and Roberto Carlos and crazy money in a very unbalanced team.

    Money hungry mercenary or not, he has every right to be upset. Still can't believe the world cup is being held there

    :confused:

    Does that excuse racism and deserves not being talked about? Addressing a problem helps stopping it.

    Talking about it and alerting the governing bodies is one thing but acting all surprised about the fact it's a current thing in Russia is another entirely different thing.
    So yeah I repeat, he can feck off

    Have to laugh at Anzhi. This guy thinks QPR are crazy because they payed what Anzhi payed a year earlier and “At QPR he will earn almost as much as he did at Anzhi.”

    And he's no where near the top 5 European CBs imo.

    That's one of the craziest football related interviews I have ever read in my life. The sheer amount of contradiction in it staggering. Each sentence is refuted by the next.

    "At QPR he will earn almost as much as he did at Anzhi. In my view QPR have lost their minds"

    :lol:

    I'm still not ruling out the possibility that it's either a wind up, or fabricated quotes.
