Nigeria striker Emmanuel Emenike has threatened to quit Turkish giants Fenerbahce after being racially abused by fans.
The 27-year-old ripped off his shirt and stormed off the pitch in protest at being called a n***** during Sunday’s 1-0 win over Besiktas.
The Super Eagle demanded to be substituted after being booed by his own fans during their 1-0 home win over rivals Besiktas.
The Nigeria international reacted angrily to jeers after losing the ball and took his shirt off, storming off the pitch, only be to be talked back on by his coaching staff.
He was replaced at half-time.
After the game the furious forward, who signed from Spartak Moscow, tweeted: “I hope I’ll be somewhere where fans love me soon.
“I don’t want to play football for people who call me “n*****”. Miss red-white times… Let’s KICK Racism Out Of Football.”
Moussa Sow, who scored an injury-time winner, said: “Emenike is very worried. Our fans should raise him up.”
Emenike – who is in his second spell at the club – has only scored four goals in 22 league appearances this season for title contenders Fenerbahce.
He joined Fener in 2011 but was linked to a match-fixing scandal, though he was later cleared of any involvement, joining Spartak before playing a game for the Istanbul club.
The striker rejoined the club in 2013.
Senegal striker Sow added: “Our fans should support him. We need him for the title. This season has been tough for Emenike. He would like to contribute to the team.
“He is very eager for success like us but our fans want us to win the games – they are aware of this season’s importance.” Meanwhile Emenike has left Turkey for Nigeria.
Fenerbahce boss Ismail Kartal allowed the striker two days leave following the derby.
The Nigerian international is expected to return to Istanbul on March 25.
