Czech foreign minister summons British ambassador over racism row
Czech Foreign Minister Jakub Kulhanek has summoned Britain's ambassador to Prague, Nick Archer, over insults and accusations of racism in the British media directed against a soccer crowd consisting mainly of schoolchildren who attended Thursday’s game between Sparta Prague and the Glasgow Rangers in Prague. British media claim that the children abused Rangers player Glen Kamara, booing him throughout the game, raising numerous insulting comments on the social media and triggering an angry exchange between football fans on both sides.
Marvin Bartley, Equality Advisor by the Scottish Football Association Tweeted “What chance do these children have when placed in a bowl with rotten fruit? Sparta responded with an angry statement saying the Scottish Football Association should be ashamed of attacking and insulting children under the age of ten, many of whom have no idea what racism is.
Czech Foreign Minister Jakub Kulhanek also gave a sharp response writing on Twitter "Enough! Intentionally spread, disgusting insults against Czech children in the media and on the Internet do not belong to football and even less so to good relations between two countries.
