Nigeria Player Racially Abused, Stoned With Cans Of Beer During Belgian First Division A Game

Nigeria international Uche Agbo received the first red card of his Standard Liege career in the 42nd minute of his team's 2-1 loss to Kortrijk in the Belgian First Division A on Wednesday evening.
Referee Verboomen first booked him in the 34th minute for a clear foul, seven minutes later he got his marching orders for an attempted tackle deemed to be reckless.

Uche was unhappy about his dismissal and refused to leave the pitch, and as a result the home fans made monkey noises at the Standard Liege star.

He responded by making an obscene hand gesture to the supporters, who threw cans of beer at him, but one of his teammates managed to convince him to enter the locker room.

Uche has been backed by Watford defender Christian Kabasele, who was racially abused by the same Kortrijk fans while defending the colours of Racing Genk three years ago.

The Belgium international has advised that racist fans should be banned from entering the stadiums in Belgium as it is the case for the European competitions.
