Nakamura Left Slovak Football Club Over Racism
Japanese striker Yuki Nakamura has written on his blog citing racism as the reason for his departure from Slovak football club Rimavska Sobota, where he was on loan from Viktoria Zizkov.
Speaking on his own blog, Nakamura wrote “It’s a real shame but I have come home because I have been subjected to racism at Rimavska Sobota and I can’t carry on living there”. Nakamura mentioned how fans would launch abuse at him at matches and that it didn’t seem to matter to his teammates, according to Bigpondsport.com.
After the club said there was nothing they could do about it, the Japanese player decided to return home. A plan is being discussed in FIFA at present about penalising clubs for racist abuse by deducting points from them.
