A FORMER Sunderland AFC star has reportedly been forced out of a country by racists.
Striker Djibril Cisse has left Panathinaikos for Italian club Lazio for £5.3million.
Now the wife of the French international says he had to suffer offensive chanting, and banana inflatables being thrown on to the pitch.
“It limited how much I could watch from our home or at the stands with the children,” said Jude Cisse, 35, who runs a spa in Cheshire.
She added: “Putting aside all the racism, I found it distressing when fans accessed the pitch.
“Can you imagine thousands of fans running at your partner?”
