BELGIAN DEFENDER CHRISTIAN Kabasele scored for his club Genk in their 3-1 win over Standard Liege on Sunday.

The 24-year-old powered home a headed early on in the first half before celebrating with his best monkey impression.

Kabasele’s act was a response to the racist chants directed at him in the recent game against KV Kortrijk.

In football or in life everyday, racism has no place,” he explained. “I gave the best answer.”
