Only a couple of days before the beginning of the Summer Olympic competition against Brazil on July 15, the German national football team depart from the ground during a football friendly match against Honduras national football team. The football match, which was played away from fans in the game, didn’t continue and complete with a score of 1-1 with 5 minutes left to play after German defender Jordan Torunarigha was purportedly racially exploited and abused by a Honduras football player in Japan.
German football head coach Stefan Kuntz stated that “At the point when one of our football players is badly abused, playing on isn’t an option. He could scarcely contain himself and got appallingly sad on the football grounds that he said he had been more than once racially offended. It was obvious to us then that it abuses the abilities and morals of ours players”.
“We were unable to allow that either and we’re backing our player totally. The entire Honduras players & bench approached the bench and said sorry. That finished the problem for us and Torunarigha. Jordan’s teammate got him straight away, gave him a big hug for an initial couple of moments. He was extremely sad. In any case, you could advise that he was glad to be with us. Eventually, we even joked a little bit once more.”
It was Germany’s last friendly match before it opens its Summer Olympics competition against Brazil in Japan on Japan. Saudi Arabia and Ivory Coast make up the group table. Jordan, a 23-year-old football player, the child of the former Nigerian football player Ojokojo Torunarigha, has confronted abuse before. He was designated with monkey chants by some Schalke fans in a German cup football game in February last year. Schalke was fined 44 lakhs rupees for the abuse.
The National Autonomous Federation of Football of Honduras stated that the circumstance was down to a misconception on the football ground.” In February month last year, Hertha, Berliner Sport-Club defender Torunarigha was shipped off for responding to supposed monkey chants from Schalke fans during a German Cup game loss.
