Dmitry Tarasov showed a shirt with the image of Russian President Vladimir Putin and inscription “Most polite President.”
Yesterday in the 1/16 finals of the Europa League Moscow “locomotive” lost in Istanbul – Turkish club Fenerbahce 0:2. But to remember the match not the score, not weak-willed game of guests, and not super-saves of the goalkeeper of railwaymen Guilherme, who saved the team from defeat, and by the act of the Russians midfielder Dmitry Tarasov.
After the match, Tarasov approached to a tribune of fans of “Locomotive”, took off his t-shirt, and under it was a t-shirt with the image of Russian President Vladimir Putin and inscription “Most polite President.”
Like, nothing special, you say. Everyone has the right to Express their beliefs. Referred to this and the player himself. Supposedly, it was his own idea, and he already wore this shirt, and only now she has caused such a resonance. But the thing, first, was in Turkey, relations with which Russia has now not the most simple. And this rash act of Dmitry could cause a negative reaction from the fans, “Fenerbahce”, famous for its ferocious temper. They were pelted with stones before the game, fans “Loko”.
And, secondly, the sport is out of politics. And act Tarasova gets under article of the disciplinary code UEFA banning all forms of political or ideological propaganda.” Now the husband of TV presenter Olga Buzovoy (she, by the way, my wife supported me) is threatened with disqualification on 10 matches!
However, Tarasov still banned from the next game – due to the fact that she received the third yellow card.
