- Advertisment -

Liverpool has called out a “highly offensive and inappropriate” banner of Divock Origi put up by fans before their Wednesday’s Champions League match against Genk.

Reds fans revealed the banner in the warm-up ahead of the clash in Belgium, which has been described as “racist stereotype”.

In a press release issued before kick-off, the club affirmed it took necessary action to have it removed.

“Liverpool condemns the disrespectful banner shown in our section of the ground before the kick-off,” the statement read.

“To be precise, the image used incited and supported a racist stereotype. This is totally unacceptable.

“We acted swiftly to have the banner take off and we are now coordinating with the local authorities and stadium team in Genk to know about those responsible.

“Any subsequent action will be taken with keeping in mind with our sanctions rules.”

The Liverpool supporters’ union, Spirit of Shankly, has also condemned and expressed their disapproval of the banner.

“Football isn’t a different entity from society, it is part of it and we all have our duty in ensuring people realize there is no room for racism.

Simply not allowing people is not the solution. Education and reaffirming there is nothing there for discrimination in society has to be a part of the solution.”

Club officials expressed their concern and rage since the banner’s racial implications were critical.

UEFA did not mention anything on the issue on Wednesday night but it is almost a surety they will levy strict charges against Liverpool; a recent incident came in May 2018 when Bayern Munich was charged with a fine of €25,000 for an ‘illicit banner’ that was put up in their Champions League semi-final with Real Madrid.

The governing body is still taking care of the reports of the match referee and delegate and then come to a decision regarding whether to start a disciplinary inquiry with respect to the matter.
