Romanian journalist Emanuel Rosu has revealed that Slavia Prague’s claim that a Glasgow Rangers player racially abused Nicolae Stanciu is so far totally unconfirmed.
Rosu provides Stanciu update
The fall-out from the Europa League round of 16 clash between the Gers and the Czechia champions continues. Glen Kamara had previously accused Ondrej Kudela of racially abusing him, and recently Slavia revealed their own player had also been discriminated against (eFotbal.cz).
However, on Twitter, Rosu said:
“It’s unconfirmed so far.”
Any allegation of racism or discrimination must be taken seriously. Regardless of Slavia’s total denial of the abuse directed towards midfielder Kamara without so much as an investigation (slavia.cz), any horrific words towards their own player cannot be swept under the carpet.
What is surprising, though, is the delay in the emergence of these claims. The Gers faced Slavia on March 18th, which is now 13 days ago. As soon as Kudela approached Kamara during the match itself, it was quite clear he had said something aggressive towards the Finland international. However, it was first claimed eight days after the fact that £4.05m-valued Stanciu (Transfermarkt) was insulted in some way. Unfortunately, given how defensive Slavia have been throughout the whole saga, it is hard not to ask questions.
Do you expect Slavia and Kudela to be punished?
Hopefully, UEFA act quickly to sort out this whole sorry chaos.
