Prague: The Czech President’s office announced on Thursday that it had complained to UEFA about the 10-game ban on Slavia Prague defender Ondrej Kudela for racist abuse of Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara.

 » You have convicted a decent man without a single evidence … just about the perverse expectations of a close group of activists and a club that can’t win on the pitch. « 

 » In your hands the fight against racism has turned into … hypocrisy, positive discrimination and ridiculous bowing to silly trends, « added Mynar
