UEFA have confirmed that they have opened a formal disciplinary case against Liverpool’s Europa League third qualifying round opponents FK Rabotnicki after allegations of racism from the Rabotnicki supporters.
The racism, during last week’s Europa League third qualifying round first leg in which the Reds won 2-0 in Macedonia, appeared to be aimed towards Liverpool’s two black players – David Ngog and David Amoo.
A UEFA statement released today reads, “The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body has opened a disciplinary case against FK Rabotnicki for the improper conduct of supporters during their UEFA Europa League third qualifying round first-leg match against Liverpool FC on July 29 in Skopje, FYR Macedonia. The case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body on Thursday, August 19.”
Liverpool take on Rabotnicki again tonight in the second leg of the tie at Anfield. Kick-off is 7.45pm.
