Spanish police have arrested the man who racially insulted Barcelona defender Dani Alves by throwing a banana at him — and reports claim he is a youth coach at Villarreal.

According to Spanish media, David Campayo Lleo, 26, has been fired from the coaching staff of one of the club’s youth teams. Villarreal would not confirm reports about his role but he has been banned from their El Madrigal stadium for life and faces up to three years in prison if found guilty of charges related to racist provocation. – Daily Mail
