The Uruguayan Players’ Union has called on the English Football Association, accusing the English FA itself of being racist, to lift the ban on Edinson Cavani. On New Year’s Eve, the FA suspended Manchester United and Uruguayan striker Cavani for three matches for using a racist phrase in a post on social media.
Cavani, 33, responded to a tweet congratulating him with a post in which he used the Spanish word “negrito” for his win against Southampton in November. “COMUNICADO OFFICIAL pic.twitter.com/WzLkG6nlSf- Diego Godín (@diegogogodin) January 4, 2021 The word translates as “little black boy.” The FA ruled that the post was “inflammatory, violent, inappropriate and disregarding the game, “Edinson Cavani has never committed any behavior that could be interpreted as racist. He merely used an expression common in Latin America to address a loved one or close friend affectionately. “To say that the only way to get a correct understanding in existence is the one that is in the minds of the English Football Association managers is in fact a true discriminatory act that is totally repeated “Cavani (right) scored two late goals as United came from behind to beat Southampton in November (Mike Hewitt/PA) The statement continued to defend the “impeccable nature” of Cavani and further criticize the FA for voicing “ignorance and contempt for a multicultural world view.” The association condemns “any kind of prejudice” and supports the “basis” of the anti-racism laws of the FA, but As we have said before, we agree that it will be beneficial for international players coming to England in the future to obtain clear language or behavioral education that may be inappropriate in this region. That will definitely help avoid the future from occurring again in circumstances such as the one with Cavani and others. Edinson Cavani was suspended for three games and fined £ 100,000.
