UEFA has banned Slavia Prague player Ondrej Kudela for ten matches on account of racist behaviour. Kudela was accused of calling Rangers player Glen Kamara a racist slur in their UEFA Europa League Round of 16 tie last month. Kamara has also been banned for three matches for assaulting a player.

Kudela’s ban will be pertaining to UEFA club and representative team competition matches, meaning he will be eligible to play in the domestic league. The ban will also include the one match provisional suspension he served in last week’s Europa League quarterfinal first leg against Arsenal. UEFA has not taken any action against the club, Slavia Prague, for denying the allegations and making questionable allegations after the game.




The incident in question took place on March 18 at the Ibrox Stadium when Ondrej Kudela whispered a slur in Kamara’s ear. He was also under investigation for serious assault in a post-match fracas but the decision on that count is unclear as of now.

Rangers also lodged a complaint with the Scottish Police who were looking to question Ondrej Kudela when he next came to the UK. Slavia Prague had already issues a statement saying he will be unavailable against Arsenal due to illness and injury, before UEFA suspended him, expectedly to avoid police questioning.
