Player Leverkusen says he has been treated racially

A Leverkusen player said after the lost match at Union Berlin on Friday evening that the opponent’s footballers have treated him racially. It is Nadiem Amiri, a midfielder with Afghan background.

Amiri had to be stopped by fellow players when, after the final whistle, he got into a high-profile quarrel with some football players from the club from the capital.

“He’s offended because of his background. That’s behavior that we don’t want in football,” said Jonathan Tah, Leverkusen defender. “This is very sad, much worse than our defeat.”

Tah says he heard what was said to Amiri. “I hope this has consequences and that the Football Association will start an investigation.”

The Dutchman Peter Bosz is the coach of Leverkusen.
