Ugh, when will things like this be just a part of the past?
Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is being accused of making a homophobic slur right before Tuesday’s Champions League game away to CSKA Moscow — and if that's true, we can't help but think someone should be replaced.
Apparently he called the match officials "faggots."
Luckily The European Gay and Lesbian Sports Federation (EGLSF) is on it, filing a complaint against the Special One.
They aren't alone, though, as co-president Louise Englefield has urged UEFA to take action against the former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss.
Here's what they're saying:
“Homophobia is unacceptable from anyone in football, much less from one of the game’s most senior figures. We are deeply disappointed that Mr. Mourinho is casually using homophobic terms of abuse in his workplace. It is especially sad that these comments have been made during the International Football v Homophobia campaign week. As long-standing partners of the FARE network, we call on UEFA to take action and impose appropriate sanctions.”
Wait, AND they were made during International Football v Homophobia week???
That's messed up!!
Someone let this guy know how to treat his fellow humans — this is terrible!
We hope this is made right!
