The jubilation of Marko Arnautovic (32) after his goal against North Macedonia on Sunday could now have an aftermath.
The North Macedonian association has reported in writing to the Uefa and demanded sanctions against the Austrian.
A statement said: “We strongly condemn the nationalist outburst by Arnautovic against Ezgjan Alioski. We have sent an official letter to Uefa demanding the toughest punishment for Arnautovic. “
The ex-Bremer, who plays in China today, had pugned after his 3-1 against Alioski. From Austria it was said that he shouted “I fuck your mother”, followed by an insult against Albanians. Alioski is of Albanian descent.
The association’s declaration goes on to say: “We will always stand up and defend the interests and dignity of the Macedonian national players wherever they play.”
On Monday, Arnautovic apologized for his jubilation: “I am not a racist and will never be one. To all people who felt addressed: I’m sorry, I’m sorry. Let’s forget all that, it’s not part of football. “
According to BILD information, Uefa refrained from an investigation. Whether and how she will react to the new demand from North Macedonia – open.
