It’s now just seven years until Russia host the World Cup and bananas are still being thrown at black players in their domestic leagues…

After refusing to rise to the bait after being issued with a banana by a racist Zenit supporter three months ago, it seems Carlos wasn’t prepared to take the repeat offence quite so lightly – substituting himself off in protest.

The Russian football league have vowed to launch an inquiry into the incident on Wednesday night, as have Krylya Sovetov – the club represented by the offending supporter.

*Sigh*

    dam shame because no matter how racist these fans are i feel that in any situation roberto carlos would DOMINATE them regardless

    thats just pathetic. poor bloke. no matter how much he’s getting paid, nobody deserves that. a real legend of the modern game – they don’t know how lucky they are to have him in their league.

    that world cup will be a shocker.

  3. Chris says:

    I applaud him for walking off. Players shouldn’t just take it anymore. The pressure must be really high to “be a good sport” and see this shit as “just taking a piss” like they do in Spain, Greece, Italy, etc. F*ck that. Walk off. Maybe then the people in charge (i.e. the people with the most money to lose) will start taking racism seriously.

    Just eat the damn banana, cause hey. Free banana.

    Dirty russian fucks.

    Is anyone going to want to go to the russian world cup? the amount of attacks and stabbings is going to be ridiculous.

  6. Markell says:

    This HAS GOT to stop! Enough already!

  7. Montesquieu says:

    @nickanoo.

    I reckon, believing that throwing a banana as a an act of hatefulness is not okay, but calling all Russian people ‘dirty fucks’, is?

    Good job. You are retarded.

  8. Solihull United says:

    racist and cold. LETS HAVE A WORLD CUP THERE!

  9. wolfusa says:

    @Montesquieu: you’re an ass. calling people ‘dirty fucks’ is relatively harmless, whereas throwing a banana is a threat. even if it’s thrown as a joke, the fact that some people still think that other people are lesser animals is disgustingly stupid and dangerous. you’re entering nazi territory.

    and your whole ‘free banana’ spiel is bullshit. i hope you realize that you’re in no position to judge that situation if you’re not a person with a darker skin tone, and if you think it’s easy to take that kind of act as a joke, then you’re really pathetic.

    @wolfusa

    ‘ i hope you realize that you’re in no position to judge that situation if you’re not a person with a darker skin tone’

    oh, so now you have to be black to have an opinion on racism? sounds perfectly logical.

    But feeling insulted is somehow admitting racist views. Roberto Carlos isn’t African, he doesn’t even look like African. Not that being African is something bad. But my point is these players, especially Carlos, get paid millions and they are acting like children. If someone tells me snowflake I won’t feel like shit. Black, brown or whateva people should feel exactly the same.

  12. Michael says:

    And WHY no one throws bananas at Gareth Bale, LOL

  13. krebsalex says:

    Guys,it is not good to offend Russians,all people are different!If you had possibility to visit Russia and you can compare with your country-go ahead,If had not,please zip up!’Dirty fucks’it is nickooo & who had agreed with him!!!

    “If someone tells me snowflake I won’t feel like shit. Black, brown or whateva people should feel exactly the same.”

    ur maybe because white people have never suffered the same scale of oppression, victimisation and actual slavery, so throwing a banana at a someone who is black or brown carries with it a whole history of a racist persecution that just isn’t there for white people.

  15. Alexander says:

    @ehemisgod: Are you trying to shame anyone into feeling guilty by dredging up visions of “slavery” and “discrimination”? Newsflash: it doesn’t work anymore.
