Dynamo face more Uefa censure

27/03/2015  Comments (5)  jump
Dynamo Kyiv have been ordered to close a part of their stadium again, this time because of racist chants aimed at Everton players during the two team's Europa League Round of 16 second leg last week.

A small section of the Olympic Stadium was closed for Everton's visit because of crowd disturbances during Dynamo's win over Guingamp on the previous round.

The Ukrainian league leaders are now being censured again with a 15,000 fine and another seating restriction for the visit of Fiorentina in the quarterfinals.

When I was over there, I did not hear anything bad. But then again, I was a little depressed with how our defense were non-existent at the time. A lot of Ukrainians came up to me after the game to shake my hand and say good game. Also the atmosphere they created was pretty amazing. I hope Dynamo Kyiv win the tournament and wish them all the best.

I will not be so positive, however, about certain Everton players who I felt let us down, such as Coleman, Baines, Howard and Atsu... or both Barry, who doesn't give a monkey's anymore, or Alcaraz who played the worst game of football I have ever witnessed.

The Ukranian people we met were first class; no problems whatsoever.

A great trip spoilt by 90 mins of defenders not defending – and that's all of them – not one man that is getting it in the neck.

If this were the other way around I'm sure the punishment would have been much greater. It is obvious that Uefa/Fifa despise the English game. The closure of part of the ground for the game with us was nothing more than a token gesture as this latest punishment is. We deserved to go out on footballing grounds, but Uefa as an organisation is an absolute disgrace the way it deals – or rather doesn't deal – with racism and hooliganism abroad and it will continue to escalate as a result.

It will be interesting to see what punishment is handed out after the scenes at the Montenegro v Russia game the other day.

Lee, you’re spot on. Uefa/Fifa can’t stand us and come down on English clubs like a ton of bricks but when racism rears its ugly head, especially in eastern Europe, they prefer to hide their ugly heads in the sand and do sod all about it.

Slightly mystified by this. I couldn't go to the game myself, but none of the friends and colleagues who went has mentioned racist chanting. Also, I'm not aware of any of the Everton players mentioning it; nor (so far as I know) has the club made any official comment about it.
