Rhian Brewster slams UEFA's racism punishment to Bulgaria


Bulgaria will play their next two competitive home matches behind close doors over an alleged racism roar from fans

Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster has slammed UEFA after Bulgaria were ordered to play their next game behind closed doors following the racist behaviour of their fans during the Euro 2020 qualifier against England this month.

During the qualifying match at the Levski Stadium in October 14, a section of supporters directed racial abuse at England's black players while some were also seen making Nazi salutes.

It appears Brewster isn't satisfy with UEFA's judgement in regards to the violation.

Brewster has suffered vile racist abuse playing for both club and country and he has blasted the governing body for failing to take a stand against racism.

The Liverpool starlet wrote on Twitter : "Another embarrassing verdict today. Two games behind closed doors for Nazi salutes and racism. The world needs to wake up. #KickitOut."

But the punishment handed to Bulgaria, announced by UEFA on Tuesday afternoon, exceeds the standard sanction for a second offence at a home match within a period of five years, which would normally be one match behind closed doors.

The Bulgarian Football Union was also fined 75,000 euros (£64,641) for the violation.
