Club statement: Slavia denies allegations of racism

The club denies the allegations of racism of one of the team captains Ondřej Kúdela.

Slavia resolutely denies the disgusting accusation of one of the team captains Ondřej Kúdela of racist behaviour. Already the founders of our club gave us crest with colours meaning “the purity of the idea of sports and fair contest where the rival is not our enemy, but respected opponent.” Today, Slavia is an international club based on respect for our opponents and mutual respect of all people and cultures.

After one of the brutal fouls, Ondřej Kúdela spoke to one of the Rangers players. “I told him ‘You fucking guy’. It was said in emotions, but I absolutely deny there was anything racist in those words,” Kúdela stated.

Slavia players faced an unprecedentedly malicious play from their opponents. They have never experienced such play in any game they participated in modern history of the European competitions. Many brutal tackles resulted in injuries of our players. Goalkeeper Ondřej Kolář was taken to hospital with ten stitches on his head.

After the end of the game, the team was not allowed to enter the dressing room. Ondřej Kúdela was assaulted by player Kamara and hit with fists in the head when Rangers manager Steven Gerrard witnessed the incident. Even the UEFA representatives who were also present on the site of the incident were shocked by this behaviour.

The team is now safe accompanied by the Scottish police.
