‘South Koreans Are Mentally Handicapped Retards’ – Swiss Olympic Footballer Expelled For Racist Tweet

The Swiss Olympic Football side’s very own Travis Bickle, one Michel Morganella, has been banished from the competition for sending an angry Tweet after his country were beaten 2-1 by South Korea on Sunday in which he referred to the entire South Korean nation as a bunch of ‘mentally handicapped retards’ that he’d like to ‘beat up’…

The Tweet translates as something akin to “I want to beat up all South Koreans. Bunch of mentally handicapped retards.”

Nice chap.

The problems began when Morganella feigned injury and was duly booed by the South Korean support everytime he ventured near the ball from thereon out. The final scoreline probably didn’t help matters either.

Morganella has since deleted his Twitter account and publicly apologised for his comment:

“I made a huge mistake after a disappointing result. I wish to apologise to the people in South Korea and their team, but also to the Swiss delegation and Swiss football in general.”

Unsurprisingly it wasn’t enough to keep the 23-year old Palermo defender from being thrown out on his arse.

    Who does he think he is!?? He’s not even english, he doesn’t even play for Chelsea, he doesn’t even knob his mate’s wives! There’s only one racist… there’s only one John Terry

  2. SL says:

    You know Terry would have slimed his way out of it if he had said that and told everyone they were wrong for taking it the wrong way!

    It’s a good attempt, but he’ll never pip John Terry or Luis Suarez to the gold medal in racism with that.

    well his crappy haircut matches his narrow-minded skinhead mentality

    I don’t think this guy’s thought it through very well. With a population of around 50 million it’s going to take him a very long time to beat them all up. Old women and children might only take a couple of kicks to the genitals, but other people would take a lot longer to beat up. He might even find some people so equally matched that it goes on for hours, which would severely hamper his attempts.

    After a few million he’ll probably be getting old and not as fit as he is now. Also, depending on how long it takes him to beat an individual up, many babies will be born – so he’ll need to beat them up faster than they are born in order to make any progress. Best of luck with it though mate.

    @plops you’re forgetting that the national sport of Korea is Taekwondo so this guy might not even make it past the first guy
