CSKA striker and Ivory Coast international Seydou Doumbia says his international teammate Yaya Toure was "clearly exaggerating" over the alleged racist abuse that was directed at him in Moscow last night.
CSKA deny that any racist abuse was directed at Toure and Doumbia heard nothing altogether. He is quoted as saying,
"I didn't hear anything like that from the CSKA fans. Yes, they're always noisy in supporting the team, and try to put as much pressure as possible on our opponents, but they wouldn't ever allow themselves to come out with racist chants. So my Ivory Coast colleague is clearly exaggerating."
