UEFA to Investigate Man City-CSKA Game

MOST COMMENTED

UEFA President Michel Platini has ordered an immediate internal investigation into the racial abuse of Yaya Toure by CSKA Moscow fans during Manchester City’s 2-1 win against CSKA in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday. The allegation is that the referee and the Russian club had failed to follow formal protocol in dealing with such situations. Under the European governing body’s guidelines, the referee, Ovidiu Hategan should have stopped the game and asked CSKA officials to relay a public message demanding the racist chanting to stop.

Interestingly, Toure’s Ivory Coast teammate Seydou Doumbia, who plays for CSKA, has denied saying that the Manchester City midfielder had been “clearly exaggerating,” as CSKA had quoted Doumbia as saying on Thursday. On his official Facebook page, the striker wrote: "Following our 1-2 defeat to Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday, I want to clarify my position after my Ivory Coast team mate and friend Yaya Toure accused CSKA fans of racism. I want to insist that I did not talk to any journalist about these facts so none of the quotes you read in the press came from me."
