Glen Kamara’s racist abuse is disgusting. The Finnish player must be undergoing a difficult time in his football career. A section of Slavia Prague fans have extended their racism abuse to Rangers players which highlights how hooliganism related to racism is far from being put to bed despite the efforts by football governing bodies.
In a new development, a picture surfaced on Instagram which showed 11 Slavia Prague supporters holding flares and a banner with a title: “Kamara – just a n*****.’
Slavia Prague team has however distanced itself from the 11 fans and released a statement to confirm that they have filed a criminal report against them.
The Czech Republic giants insisted on their commitments to fight racism for a long time. While distancing themselves from those fans, Slavia Prague described this hooliganism as an “unprecedented backstabbing of the club and its ideals.”
The club released a statement which read: “The club is absolutely disgusted by the racist photograph published online by a group of alleged ‘fans’ on Friday night.
“SK Slavia Praha files criminal complaint against unknown individuals involved in the preparation and publishing of the picture.
“We condemn this act as totally unacceptable, and we distance ourselves from it. It is an unprecedented backstabbing of the club and its ideals.
“The club will launch its own inquiry into this matter in order to identify those individuals.
“Racism has no room in our club, and we have been fighting against it for a long time.
“Every player is considered a member of our family, no matter what the color of their skin, their nationality, cultural background, or religion is.
“We maximally support our players in their current fight against racism and against the above-mentioned picture on social media.
“Slavia has great fans who many times managed to amaze the football world in a positive way. We ask them to join us, and publicly sign up to zero tolerance of racism and condemn such behavior.
“Let’s present the real, cultivated, and noble Slavia we are all proud of.”
This comes just a few days after Slavia Prague player Ondrea Kudela allegedly branded Kamara a ‘f****** monkey’ in their Europa League game last Thursday.
