Fine of 136 thousand dollars and three games of punishment to Cavani for using the word “negrito”


The sanction was confirmed for #Edinson #Cavani: The #English #Federation (#Football #Association) indicated this #Thursday that the #Uruguayan received a three-game suspension for having used the word “negrito” on his #Instagram account.

The FA statement indicates that the comment of the soccer player of the #Manchester #United was “insulting, abusive, improper and brought the game into disrepute contrary to rule E3.1. of the FA”. #Furthermore, it indicates that the publication constitutes an aggravated offense, defined by rule E.3.2, since “includes a reference, implicit or explicit, to color, race or ethnic origin”.

#Cavani was also fined 100,000 pounds sterling (about $ 136,000) and must attend classes on racism, as indicated by the FA.

The #Uruguayan was sanctioned after responding to a story from an acquaintance who congratulated him on his performance against #Southampton, where he scored two goals, with the phrase “#Thank you, black”.

#Cavani will miss matches against #Aston #Villa (#Premier #League), #Manchester #City (#League #Cup semi-final) and #Watford (FA #Cup third round).

#Following the decision, #Manchester #United issued a statement in which “#Cavani was not aware that his words could be misinterpreted and apologized for the publication and to anyone who might be offended.” #Furthermore, they noted that “despite honestly believing that I was simply sending a warm greeting in response to a message from a close friend, decided not to resort to the sanction out of respect and solidarity with the FA and the fight against racism in football”.

“While it is clear that context and intention are key factors, it is noted that the independent #Regulatory #Commission required a minimum penalty of three games. The club trusts that the commission will make clear in its written motives that #Edinson #Cavani is not a racist and that he had no racist intent in his post“#Manchester #United added in their statement.
