Frederic Kanoute, Didier Zokora, Asamoah Gyan and Moussa Sow have shown support for Shanghai Shenhua attacker Demba Ba who was racially attacked in Saturday's Chinese Super League fixture against Changchun Yatai.
The Shanghai club protested that Yatai's Zhang Li used racist words against the Senegal international in the encounter that ended 1-1 at the Development Area Stadium.
While Wu Jingui's side have called for disciplinary actions, the African stars have condemned the action in clear words.
