Slavia Prague’s Ondrej Kudela gets 10-game ban, Kamara banned for three

Slavia Prague’s Ondrej Kudela has received a ten-game ban for “racist behaviour” towards Rangers’ Glen Kamara.

Kamara will serve a three-match ban for assaulting Kudela after the sides’ Europa League meeting.

Kudela had denied Kamara’s claims that he was racially abused in the closing minutes of Rangers’ 2-0 loss.

The defender had already served a previsionary one-match suspension which saw him miss last week’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal. He will now miss Prague’s next nine European games.

A UEFA statement said: “Following an investigation conducted by a UEFA Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector regarding the incidents that occurred during the 2020/21 UEFA Europa League Round of 16 second leg match between Rangers FC and SK Slavia Praha on 18 March 2021, and the subsequent proceedings opened against Mr. Ondřej Kúdela and Mr. Glen Kamara, the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has taken the following decisions:

“To suspend SK Slavia Praha player, Mr. Ondřej Kúdela, for the next ten (10) UEFA club and representative team competition matches for which he would otherwise be eligible to play, for racist behaviour, which includes the one-match provisional suspension served by the player during SK Slavia Praha’s 2020/21 UEFA Europa League quarter-final first leg match against Arsenal FC on 8 April 2021.

“To suspend Rangers FC player, Mr. Glen Kamara, for three (3) UEFA club competition matches for which he would otherwise be eligible to play, for assaulting another player.”
