The French player was upset following the argument with Cala and Valencia decided to walk off the pitch in condemning the incident, with Diakhaby later prompting his team-mates to go back to the pitch.

The altercation started when the equalizer was scored in the 29th minute, with the Valencia centre-back walking up to Cala for confrontation until the referee broke the two up and the team left the pitch in their team-mate’s support. They returned after 15 minutes, saying Diakhaby insisted the game should go on.

The 24-year-old, however, was replaced by Hugo Guillamon while Cadiz defender Cala remained put.
