Mallorca fitness coach Dani Pastor has been accused of making a racist gesture to attract the attention of Takefusa Kubo during the LaLiga game against Espanyol on Sunday.
Salva Sevilla suffered an injury during the game, with Mallorca electing to bring on Kubo, who is on loan from Real Madrid, to replace him.
While Kubo was warming up, footage showed Pastor whistling before appearing to make a slant-eyed gesture to attract the attention of the Japan international.

Kubo replaced Sevilla in the 65th minute but couldn’t prevent his side from suffering a 1-0 defeat.
The 18-year-old joined Real Madrid from FC Tokyo last summer and signed a five-year deal with the Spanish club.
Kubo was brought on in the 65th minute but it was Pastor’s actions which gained attention
Kubo, who can play out wide or as an attacking midfielder, featured for Real in pre-season but the decision was taken to loan him out for the entirety of this season.
So far Kubo has made 21 appearances for Mallorca in all competitions, scoring once and providing two assists.
