While a Serbian first division side is fined and banned from their home stadium due to their racist support, fans get a taste of their own medicine in England.
Just a week after everyone's favourite white supremacist fraternal organisation made an appearance on the terraces in Scotland, this bizarre form of racial goading has made its way to Serbia
Saturday's Serbian Super Liga clash between Borac and Vozdovac Belgrade, which saw the visitors from the capital win 1-0, was notable for eight fans being charged with spreading racial hatred and a further 29 detained for disorderly conduct at a football match.
The Borac fans had donned Ku Klux Klan white hoods and held banners reading "The South will rise again" and "Go away from here because nobody likes you" -- the last being a marvellously wordy effort that reads like an eight year-old penned it.
They also made the Nazi salute and the match was delayed for 10 minutes midway through the first half for police to wade in and arrest the offenders (Scottish coppers take note).
Well done the Serbian police -- and that's not something I ever thought I'd type.
The subject of the Borac supporters' hatred was Vozdovac's Zimbabwean striker Mike Tawmanyera, who commented: "I have never been insulted for being black before. I got scared for my wife and child. I've been given a great reception by the club and I get along really well with my neighbours. Some of them play all day with my son Nikola, who has a Serbian name because I like it here so much."
It's thought that Tawmanyera had been singled out as he used to play for Borac's local rivals Javor Ivanjica, although that hardly excuses the repugnant behaviour of the Borac fans.
The Serbian Football Association said the club could be hit with a fine up to 7,300 euros and be forced to play between one and six matches behind closed doors. If they need any alternative arenas to play in, I hear Nuremberg circa 1933 might be right up their alley.
There is a big question here that obviously needs asking: Is there a giant right-wing soccer conspiracy linking Airdrie in Scotland to Cacak (home town of Borac) in Serbia
