Abdeslam Ouaddou has reacted angrily to claims by referee Damien Ledentu that the Valenciennes captain did not inform match officials of the racist abuse he was receiving during Saturday´s game against Metz.

A supporter accused of abusing Ouaddou during the Ligue 1 game at the Saint-Symphorien will appear in court on March 18 after being charged with making racist insults in public. Ouaddou approached the fan during the match and said he warned referee Ledentu of the abuse being directed at him.

Ledentu has denied those claims, however, leading Ouaddou to tell French daily L´Equipe: "I am even more disappointed. It is yet more dishonesty. When I said (to reporters) on Saturday that I had warned the referee on several occasions, I meant it. He replied to me that I should remain on the pitch."
