Spain’s La Liga representative, Real Madrid, is being severely sanctioned by UEFA for not supporting LGBT as a club.
UEFA, the boss of European football, took action for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender). In June, many European clubs announced their support by including the colors LGBT symbolized in their logos and jerseys.
It has been learned that Real Madrid, which does not participate in this practice, will be punished by UEFA.
According to Argentina’s sports daily Diário Olé, Real Madrid President Florentino Perez disagreed with recent statements of support for the LGBT organisation.
“Contrary to the club’s traditions and beliefs”
He cited his commitment to the club’s traditions and beliefs as a reason.
While many clubs use the colors of the rainbow, which has become the symbol of the LGBT organization, in their logos, Real Madrid, which opposes this perception, is subjected to a harsh sanction by UEFA.
Sanction decision from UEFA
Rainbow colors symbolizing LGBT were rejected by Spanish La Liga representative Real Madrid. UEFA decided to impose a harsh sanction on the Spanish club that opposed its instructions.
Giant European clubs such as Liverpool, City, United, Chelsea, Barcelona, Juventus and Bayern Munich also included symbols supporting LGBT in their jerseys and logos.
Gueye had also refused
PSG’s Muslim football player Idrissa Gana Gueye refused to wear the jersey found by LGBT colors and did not go to the PSG-Montpellier match.
Making a statement on the subject, coach Pochettino announced that Idrissa Gana Gueye had to leave the team for personal reasons.
