Ghanaian striker Yakubu Mohammed has left Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca due to alleged racism, according to GHANASoccernet.

The 25-year-old former AshantiGold player only arrived in Morocco two weeks ago but says he has terminated his contract because the club racially abused him.


Mohammed is the third Ghanaian to leave Raja under such circumstances in recent times, with Nathaniel Asamoah and Awal Mohammed also terminating their deals with the North African side.

“In football, you play where you are needed and respected,” Mohammed is quoted on GHANASoccernet.

“They are racists. That is why I left. They have all the facilities to develop the game but they don’t respect we the blacks.

“They don’t treat us well and it appears our welfare is not a problem for them,” he added.
