One of Serbia's top football clubs, Partizan Belgrade, has condemned racist chanting during a match that reduced one of its players, Brazilian midfielder Everton Luiz, to tears.

He suffered monkey chants and other abuse from fans of rivals Rad Belgrade.

"I couldn't hold back the tears because I was racially insulted from the stands for 90 minutes," said Everton, 28.

A Partizan statement backing him said "we strongly condemn the perpetrators of this insane act".

At the end of the match Everton made a crude gesture at the Rad Belgrade fans, prompting some Rad players to confront him. A brawl broke out, but staff from both sides managed to separate the players.

Rad supporters also brandished a banner insulting Everton. Rad, playing at home, lost 0-1 to Partizan.





I don't even know where to begin with this story but the first that comes to mind is the association of soccer and racism. This isn't the first story I've read about soccer fans and their racist chants and I'm sure it won't be the last, but why? Why is racism apart of the soccer culture? I couldn't imagine reading a headline here in America about an NFL player being brought to tears because of racist chants from the crowd. Why is this behavior tolerated and how come those fans weren't kicked out? Maybe because their team was encouraging it? Funny enough, Everton Luiz is going to be punished for flipping the bird but who knows if the other team will face any consequences.

Looking at those pictures of a grown man crying because he's being bullied by racist sports fans, how does it make you feel?

Seems to me racists infiltrate organizations to get a chance to exhibit their malignant ideas, the same way pedaphiles infiltrate youth organizations and bullies become soldiers and cops.

They want to be somewhere they can legally release their pent up hatred and hide the true nature of it.

Tribalism
Safety in Numbers
Inbred racism basically going back a long time

He should have been able to keep his head up though and not give them the satisfaction of winning as it were. I feel for the guy. It used to happen such a lot in the UK but don't hear as much about it anymore thankfully

This was a sad thing to witness first hand at the stadium.

As a Serb, it f#ing makes no sense how can some Serbian people declare themselves as fascists and Nazi's, considering just how much my people had suffered by their hands. To clarify, it was a small group of maybe 50 people, who openly declare themselves as Neo-Nazi group.

No words to describe how sorry I felt for Everton, as he always gives his best, and is one of our best players on the team, and considering that the guy always had nice things to say about Serbia.

Oh wow, you were there? How come they were allowed to just sit there and chant and taunt him like that without being kicked out? 50 people is a lot but I saw a guy in camo on the field so it looks like you guys had some badass security there, right?

Allowing them to freely chant their hate without consequence only enables this kind of behavior and sadly normalizes it.

Those idiots were placed on a part of the stadium that is physically separated from the rest of us; it has a special entry gate. And plus, I'm not sure how familiar you are with the problem Europe has with hooligans, but damn, even I would think twice before trying to stand up to these idiots, considering they are being used by the government to silence any opposition, plus they almost always carry knives + guns. Just recently I was physically assaulted on the football stadium of my own team, for yelling some inappropriate stuff about our government.

And I don't know. Whenever Everton would get the ball, those idiots would make monkey noises, which is even more retarded if you ask me. I dunno why they didn't stop the match, but maybe it's because Everton did not complain to the referee. But I agree the right thing to do was to stop the match.

Oh yeah, I think we're all at least aware of the violence that goes on at soccer games, hooligans. I agree, they are a dangerous lot but someone must stand up to them. Racism is bad enough but violence in general isn't something to look forward to when going to a game. Now violence and sports, no matter what nation, go hand in hand sometimes but soccer violence is on another level completely.

It's too bad he didn't score against them....he could have played along with their taunts and acted like a monkey after scoring. ..indicating that even a monkey could score against their team. ....that would have been funny.

As horrible as that was, he needs to toughen up.
People like Cyril Regis and John Barnes had bananas thrown at them along with the insults, they just did their best to destroy the other team in response.

This is really new to you?

Racist hate filled soccer fans have been doing it for decades.

Here are Muslims chanting alla Akbar and booing a moment of silence after the Islamic terror attacks in France.

No it's not new and that's the problem. It's been going on far too long and proper steps to shut it up down need to be addressed.

Of course you would bring a video painting Muslims being bad because Muslims.

I wish we can introduce the Black Lives Matter folks into these racists. I mean BLM is looking for racists, so these Serb racists fits the bill (White Racist Males).

This reminded me of the late 1980's when Mark Walters joined Glasgow Rangers.
Rangers were away from home to Hearts at Tynecaslte in Edinburgh for one of his first games.All the bananas were seemingly sold out in Edinburgh and ended up all over the pitch at Tynecaslte.
Things have really changed in the Scottish game since then,I think all those Eastern European countries are just a bit backwards and twenty odd years behind Western Europe.

Yeah, though I wonder if they will ever change? British crowds are pretty good at self policing this rubbish now.

I wonder if the same will happen over there though, Not sure they have any reason to change their ways.

Soccer always had hooligans, and in most cases those same hooligans have political associations or are part of right wing extremist groups. My answer as to why they werent evicted out of the stadium is because they are more numerous than the police that is there to do security, and FIFA which is the head organism of the football association deals with cases like this, what's going to happen is that RAD will pay a fine and will have to play a number of games at closed doors, this means no spectators in the stand.

There are certain football clubs that take a stand against racism and other forms of ism, in Germany you have Fc St. Pauli which is considered a socialist left leaning club, in Italy you have Livorno which is considered a communist leaning club, In Scotland you have Glasgow Celtic which also takes a stand against these things, etc etc etc.

PS: when it comes to the clubs paying the fines for their supporters wrong doings, that should be revised, those same supporters should pay the price themselves, if not, later on the clubs should punish them accordingly.

Celtic making a stand against these things?,yeah right that's why the Scottish government had to make a new law regarding things like sectarian singing at football.This law was to bring Celtic and Rangers fans into the 21st century.

I feel very sorry for this man.

Racism in soccer seems to be very bad, as are hooligans. I am not part of that culture but that part of it is ugly.

I hope that this man can take comfort in his teammates and competitors who I hope are not racist.
