There’s something about this Ondřej Kúdela farce that Slavia Praha have failed to grasp, that their fans have failed to grasp.
The club officially ‘stood by Kudela’ and denied that he’d been racist, and the fans did the same thing.
And how did they assert their point? By throwing racist abuse at him and Kemar Roofe.
Indeed, their way of proving Ondřej Kúdela wasn’t a racist was to demonstrate that they were…
The amount of abuse our black players have been taking especially since the Praha disgrace is simply impalpable – it’s been constant, and most of it is from the Easter Bloc.
Regulars to Ibrox Noise will know we too have been targeted by Czech and Polish racists, as well as other xenophobes from that part of the world, and it’s been persistent.
Every so often we’ll see another member of a Slavic nation either abusing or mocking our content – ever since that night.
Doesn’t matter what it is, some Czech or Balkan individual will come in and smear us – we can well believe the black players at our club are getting it daily too.
What does UEFA do about this?
Nothing, as they always have. They banned Kudela, fair enough – but they watered that down with a token ban on Kamara, without any proof of his guilt.
Meanwhile Praha’s fans get to continue their abusive racism at us and our black players without any accountability.
Not sure about that…
