Gnohere has explained how he suffered racist abuse during his time playing in the eastern European nation.
"It's shocking. I speak Romanian, I understand Romanian, and when the images were broadcast I understood what the fourth official said. In Romania, it's something that's commonplace, but coming from the referees it is unacceptable.
"I have never been confronted like this by a referee but when I was playing at Steaua Bucharest, a whole stand performed monkey chants. It was during a derby against Dinamo. The referee was Hategan that day and he pretended he hadn't heard anything.
"He was the only one because everyone had heard the cries very well. I mentioned it on Turkish television but nothing happened.
"When I watch the game and see his (Hategan's) attitude, I have the feeling that he doesn't want to accept what's going on. I felt like I was reliving my experience. It hurts my heart. When someone gives you monkey chants or calls you 'Black', it hurts you deep inside."
