Coach Banned For Racially Abusing A Nigerian!!! by toprealman: 6:22am On Apr 15, 2016
The coach of Slovenia's league leaders has been banned for the final seven games of the season for racially abusing
one of his own players.
Olimpija Ljubljana boss Marko Nikolic has been widely
reported as calling Blessing Eleke a "black idiot" after he felt the Nigerian, 20, spent too long celebrating an equaliser.
The club initially refused to suspend the Serb, but the
Slovenian FA intervened "because of clear racism".
Olimpija are two points clear.
The game against Zavrc ended 1-1 thanks to Eleke's first
home goal for Olimpija following his January move from
league rivals Gorica.
Nikolic said he made "an emotional reaction" as Eleke's
celebration meant there was less time for a winner against
and "never intended to offend the player racially".
He added: "I spoke to Eleke and he said he understood my
reaction because emotional outbursts of this kind can
happen.
"I apologise for my reaction generated solely by the rush to
score the winning goal after getting a 92nd-minute equaliser
and I thank the team for not judging my act as racist."
Olimpija president Milan Mandaric, the former Leicester and Portsmouth owner, had defended Nikolic, saying: "We have come to the conclusion that the coach did not target the player's race."

Thumbs up to the club for not taking action against the coach, he said the word out of frustration, why over celebrate when you know you still need a winner. Coach Laloko invents new curses for players in his club everyday here in Lagos.
