Steven Gerrard reveals that he has had a private conversation with Rangers man Glen Kamara
Steven Gerrard has revealed that he has had a private conversation with Rangers man Glen Kamara after he was booed on Thursday against Sparta Prague.
Some small children decided to boo the Gers man from the start of the match, and then Kamara was sent off in the second half.
It has been alleged that these boos were racially motivated, and the 25-year-old’s lawyer instantly slammed the abuse after the game while Gerrard held a private conversation with Kamara [Sky Sports].
He said: “I have spoken to Glen Kamara – that conversation will remain private. Glen’s [OK]. I’m sure he’s disappointed, just like myself. Now I think it’s time for the authorities and the club to step in and take that away from us so we can focus on the game on Sunday.”
Last season, Kamara was the subject of vile racist abuse against Slavia Prague, with Ondrej Kudela handed a ten-game ban for firing a racial slur at the Gers man.
Now, he has received abuse from the crowd, and despite Sparta trying to defend the actions of their fans, it is pretty clear that the boos were racially motivated [Sparta Prague].
Clearly, it is time for UEFA to step in and deduct points or ban fans from attending Sparta Prague’s games because this can’t be allowed to continue happening.
Of course, knowing how soft UEFA can be on racism, we doubt that the appropriate action will be taken, which is a disgrace [Guardian].
Hopefully, Kamara is OK after this latest incident in the Czech Republic, and Gerrard makes a very valid point about the authorities, and it remains to be seen what they do.
