Football: E. European fans involved in racist incidents, says supporters' group
BERN (REUTERS) - Supporters of Croatian football champions Dinamo Zagreb were involved in three episodes of discriminatory and racist behaviour in July, the European supporters' group Fare said on Tuesday.
Fans of Hungarian club Gyor were reported over anti-Semitic behaviour when their team faced Israeli opposition, while Honved supporters, also from Hungary, repeatedly targeted a Cameroonian player with monkey chants in another game, it said.
Fare said that a total of 14 incidents of "racism, xenophobia, extreme nationalism or homophobia", almost all involving Eastern European fans, were reported to them through eye-witness or media accounts.
"This list is only likely to reflect a proportion of the incidents that occurred," it said, adding that the incidents at matches in European club competition had been reported to Uefa.
