Watch: Didier Zokora And Teammates Kicked Racism Out Of Football In 2012

Watch: Didier Zokora And Teammates Kicked Racism Out Of Football In 2012

For all the anti-racism campaigns that are attempting to rid football of backwards, small minded fuckwits, there is a lot to be said for the best answer to racists being to literally kick them out of the beautiful game.

It seemed to work pretty effectively for former Tottenham midfielder Didier Zokora and his Trabzonspor teammates when dealing with Fenerbahce midfielder Emre Belözoğlu, back in 2012.

During a Turkish Super Lig game in April 2012, Emre clashed with Zokora and proceeded to call the Ivorian midfielder a 'fucking nigger', right in front of the referee.

Somehow, the former Newcastle United midfielder managed to escape without a caution.

Following the game, Zokora spoke to Lig TV about the incident, saying, "Belözoğlu and I came face to face during the match. I'll tell you what he said word for word. He called me: 'A fucking nigger.'

"This is the first time in my life something like this has happened to me. Belözoğlu has Africans like Yobo and Sow as team-mates - I can't understand why he'd say such a thing.

"We're trying to get on with our jobs. What does the colour of our skin matter? Fans, FIFA, the press are all against racist statements. I hope something like this doesn't go unpunished."

As it happened, the Turkish FA did allow the incident to go relatively unpunished, with Emre escaping with just a two-match ban. However, the next time Trabzonspor and Fenerbahce met, the Turkey international wasn't so lucky.

Much like that video of American Nazi fuckhead Richard Spencer getting twatted in the face, it's worth watching over and over again.

And just for good measure, here's Spencer taking that fucking pearler clean to the mush.

And here it is set to 'Blue Monday' by New Order:

Two years after the initial incident, Emre would be handed a suspended two-and-a-half-month prison sentence, becoming the first Turkish footballer to be sentenced for a racist crime.
