MANCHESTER, England - Manchester City says a friendly being played by their under-21 team in Croatia yesterday was abandoned after team management ordered the players off the pitch following alleged racist abuse.

City said in a statement their 19-year-old French midfielder Seko Fofana, who is black, was targeted by an opponent from Croatian team HNK Rijeka toward the end of the first-half in Novigrad.

The Premier League champions said a decision was taken by management to withdraw the City team from the field of play.

City's representatives in Croatia and Manchester were liaising with officials, match organisers and Croatia's football association to pursue the matter. The under-21 team bridge the gap between the youth academy and first-team squads.
