The office of the Czech president said Thursday it had complained to UEFA over the 10-match ban for Slavia Prague defender Ondrej Kudela for racially abusing Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara.
Kudela cupped his hand when he remarked Finnish player Kamara at the end of a Europa League last 16 game at Ibrox on March 18.
Czech President disagrees with UEFA over racism verdict
Kamara, who insisted Kudela had racially abused him, was on Wednesday handed a three-match ban for attacking the Slavia player after the game. Slavia won 2-0 to give them a 3-1 victory on aggregate.
In a stormy match, Rangers striker Kemar Roofe was banned for four games for a high challenge on Slavia goalkeeper Ondrej Kolar which left Kolar with a skull fracture.
Vladimir Mynar, heading the office of Czech President Milos Zeman, said in a letter to UEFA’s disciplinary body that Kudela’s ban was disproportionately high compared to those for the Rangers players.
