Quincy PromEstate: Mr Song / RIA Novosti
Midfielder “Spartacus” Quincy promes commented on a post a press-service of the club on Twitter, in which the defender red-white Georgy Jikia called black Brazilians “Spartak” “chocolates, melting in the sun.” The words of the Dutchman leads 8news.
“I don’t understand what happened, how such a reaction. All this exaggerated by the journalists… But I know the truth, not what is written. “chocolate”… As for me, this is quite normal. You can’t call someone a monkey, for example, is an animal. But there is nothing to discuss, no reason for resentment. In Russia, I have never encountered racism. I can’t even think about the fact that people here can be racist,” said Promes.
The video appeared in the Twitter account “Spartak” on January 13. Djikia this day was the social network of the club.
The international football Federation condemned the “Spartak” for the tweet. “Any form of discrimination on the field or beyond unacceptable, and it has no place in football,” said the organization.
