    Partizan midfielder Everton Luiz left the field in tears Sunday after suffering racist abuse during his team’s 1-0 victory over Rad in Belgrade, Serbia.

    Fans persisted in the abuse despite warnings from the referee and public address announcer, at one point unveiling a banner with a racial message that was removed by stewards.

    After the conclusion of the 90 minutes, Everton Luiz showed the Rad supporters the middle finger and pointed to the Partizan badge, sparking a shoving match between players from both teams as the referee tried to restore order.

    Eventually, Everton Luiz left the field, wiping away tears as he was hugged by teammates, including goalkeeper Filip Kljajic.
