Slavia Prague's Ondrej Kudela banned by UEFA for 10 games

Slavia Prague defender Ondrej Kudela has been handed a ten-match ban for racially abusing Rangers Glen Kamara during a Europa League last-16 tie. 

Kamara has also been banned for three matches for his response during the incident.

A statement from UEFA read: “Following an investigation conducted by a UEFA Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector regarding the incidents that occurred during the 2020/21 UEFA Europa League Round of 16-second leg match between Rangers FC and SK Slavia Praha on 18 March 2021, and the subsequent proceedings opened against Mr. Ondřej Kúdela and Mr. Glen Kamara, the UEFA Control, Ethics, and Disciplinary Body has taken the following decisions:

“To suspend SK Slavia Praha player, Mr. Ondřej Kúdela, for the next ten (10) UEFA club and representative team competition matches for which he would otherwise be eligible to play, for racist behaviour, which includes the one-match provisional suspension served by the player during SK Slavia Praha’s 2020/21 UEFA Europa League quarter-final first leg match against Arsenal FC on 8 April 2021.

“To suspend Rangers FC player, Mr. Glen Kamara, for three (3) UEFA club competition matches for which he would otherwise be eligible to play, for assaulting another player.”

The two clashed at the end of the Europa League last-16 second-leg match at Ibrox, leading to a confrontation from a number of players from both sides.
