STOCKHOLM (AP)– Swedish club Djurgarden says one of its gamers has received racial abuse following a top-flight league game in which he won a charge.

The Stockholm-based team says striker Mohamed Buya Turay, who is black, has actually been the subject of “unacceptable messages– both severe insults and racist abuse” given that the 2-0 win over Elfsborg on Sunday.

Djurgarden states it does not accept one of its players being exposed to these attacks and desires to “distance itself from this type of habits.”

Buya Turay was granted a charge after being tripped by an Elfsborg player, although the offense happened just outside the area.
