The UEFA disciplinary committee confirmed on Wednesday “the decision rendered on April 14” at first instance, a suspension of ten European matches “in club and in selection” imposed on Czech defender Ondrej Kudela. The latter, voted the best defender of the season in his country on Monday, was sanctioned after a particularly stormy round of 16 in the Europa League, which saw Slavia eliminate Glasgow Rangers.
Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara of Finland claimed on March 18 that Kudela had slipped a racist insult in his ear. He himself had been suspended for three matches for assaulting the 34-year-old Czech in the tunnel after the final whistle.
The affair had become political in the Czech Republic: if the boss of Slavia had apologized to Kamara, the chief of staff of the president had criticized UEFA in a letter, accusing it of a “ridiculous bow to silly tendencies. “
Kudela, who had missed the quarter-final lost against Arsenal, is now guaranteed to miss the Euro as well (June 11-July 11), while the Czech coach had reserved for him the 26th place on his list on Tuesday pending the verdict of UEFA.
