An unnamed Slavia Prague representative has spoken out about UEFA’s statement on the incidents that took place at Rangers last month.
Ondrej Kudela is alleged to have racially abused Glen Kamara while Slavia claim the Gers midfield star attacked Kudela after the game.
Kudela has been provisionally suspended for one match while UEFA continues with their investigation while a statement on Slavia’s website says the “inspector is unable to confirm or refute the description of the incident by Mr Kamara or Mr Zungu”.
Speaking to Seznam Zpravy, a representative at Slavia who wished to remain unnamed has spoken out about the latest update from UEFA.
They claim that it was a good thing the referee didn’t hear what Kudela said to Kamara.
“We take it roughly as a better draw. It is important for us that the alleged racist insult, from which Kamara accused our player Kúdela, was not heard by any of the referees or other officials, so it was not recorded in the match report, it cannot be detected from any available footage of TV cameras,” the unnamed representative said.
How is it a good thing that the referee didn’t hear what was said? This just shows the mindset of Slavia Prague as a club.
Slavia seem to be happy with knowing that Kamara will never be able to prove beyond reasonable doubt that he was racially abused.
While Bongani Zungu has also given his statement and video footage clearly shows him reacting as strongly as Kamara to what Kudela said, Slavia are still playing this whole game where they basically say, ‘well no one else heard it so you cannot prove he was racist’.
It’s no shock that the person speaking to Seznam Zpravy didn’t wish to be name – they’re a coward.
We hope that this is concluded soon. It’s been almost four weeks since Rangers were beaten by Slavia and Kamara was allegedly racially abused.
While we appreciate the matter is a complex one because of how many accusations Slavia have thrown around since, there’s no reason why this couldn’t have been dealt with sooner.
