Kerala Blasters' official fan group Manjappada has accused Bengaluru FC's Australian forward Rayan Williams of racist behaviour during the ISL Season 10 opener in Kochi on Thursday night.
"Zero tolerance for racism! We strictly condemn the racial gestures by @bengalurufc player Ryan Williams towards Aiban. @IndianFootball and @indsuperleague must act decisively against the player involved. Racism has no place in our game," wrote Manjappada on X.
The incident occured when Blasters defender Aiban Dohling and Williams were involved in an argument following a foul in the second half.
Blasters won the match 2-1. It was the first ISL encounter between the two teams after Blasters forfeited their playoff tie last season following a controversial free-kick goal.
