Cavani suspended three games for a message deemed racist


#Premier #League: #Cavani suspended three games for a message deemed racist

The former PSG striker, now at #Manchester #United, posted on social networks at the end of #November, a message deemed racist by the #English federation which sanctioned him.

#Three games of suspension. #This is the sanction imposed on #Edinson #Cavani, the #Manchester #United striker and top scorer in the history of PSG, for the message deemed racist he had published on #Instagram at the end of #November, announced the #English football federation (FA ).

“A comment posted on the #Manchester #United striker’s #Instagram profile was insulting, abusive, inappropriate and undermined the game. The post also constitutes an aggravated offense because it included a reference, express or implied, to color and / or race and / or ethnicity, ”said the FA in a statement posted on its website. #Cavani is also fined 100,000 pounds sterling (111,000 euros) and will have to undergo training.

I message him in question: «#Thank you black»

#In response to a congratulatory message sent to him by a friend after his decisive double in #Manchester #United’s victory at #Southampton (3-2), #Cavani wrote “#Gracias negrito” (“thank you little black”). #After deleting the message, the former PSG scorer apologized and the #Red #Devils defended him by explaining that the word had been used with friendly intent, and that it had a different connotation in #South #America.

These explanations were not enough to prevent him from being suspended. “#He chose not to appeal the decision, out of respect and solidarity with the FA and the fight against racism in football,” #Manchester #United said in a statement. “The club hopes that the independent disciplinary commission will clearly indicate in its written reasons that #Edinson #Cavani is not racist and that there was no racist intention in relation to his message”, underlines the #Mancunian club.

#Due to his suspension, #Cavani will not be able to play in the #Premier #League game against #Aston #Villa on #Friday. #He will also miss the #League #Cup semi-final against #Manchester #City and the FA #Cup third round against #Watford.
