Shake My HeadPosted: November 22, 2011
Good news, the president of FIFA, Sepp Blatter has declared that there is no racism in soccer. This quote was in direct response to the events of recent in which fans and players alike have been heard using racist language towards FIFA’s players.
“I would deny it. There is no racism, there is maybe one of the players towards another, he has a word or a gesture which is not the correct one, but also the one who is effected by that, he should say that this is a game.
“We are in a game, and at the end of the game, we shake hands, and this can happen, because we have worked so hard against racism and discrimination. I think the whole world is aware of the efforts we are making against racism and discrimination.
“And, on the field of play sometimes you say something that is not very correct, but then at the end of the game, the game is over and you have the next game where you can behave better.”
What planet do you live on?
