This guy sounds like the soccer equivalent to Donald Sterling.
Russian Soccer Coach Makes Racist Remarks About Black Players, Jokes About Ebola
According to NY Daily News reports:
A Russian soccer coach has said his club will not sign any more black players, adding his club had “enough dark-skinned players, we’ve got six of the things.”
FC Rostov coach Igor Gamula also claimed black players would spread Ebola to the club.
The 54-year-old made his comments, reported by The National Post, after he was asked by reporters whether the club would be signing a Cameroonian defender, Benoit Angbwa.
Gamula added that five of his Russian players had temperatures and “joked” that Ebola was the cause.
“I am already worrying it’s Ebola,” he said, adding the remark was “a joke, obviously.”
Rostov play in Russia’s top division and Gamula has only been in charge since September.
He is known for making inflammatory comments.
The next World Cup finals will be held in Russia in 2018.
SMH. There’s no place in sports for racists. This guy should not be tolerated.
