Zenit fans are racist, says Samba

Zenit St Petersburg fans who want non-white and gay players excluded from the Russian team are "living in another century", says Anzhi Makhachkala defender Christopher Samba.

The Congo-Brazzaville international told BBC Radio 5 live: "Everybody knows Zenit supporters are no good and racist. It's a sad day for Russian football.

"In this time we have different communities and countries that constitute teams. If they can't accept that then they are never going to progress."
