Racist chants aimed at Czech player

Published Add your comment

Czech Republic defender Theodor Gebre Selassie was the victim of monkey chants during his country's European Championship defeat against Russia, according to anti-racism campaigners.

The FARE (Football Against Racism in Europe) network confirmed one of their observers at Friday night's Group A game in Wroclaw heard "fleeting" racist abuse of Gebre Selassie.

Asked if it included monkey chants, FARE chief executive Piara Powar told Press Association Sport: "Our observer reported descriptions of that nature. It was directed at the Czech Republic's only black player."
