Euro 2012: Why Uefa’s failure to deal with Holland racism is no surprise: Michel Platini and Uefa’s continued reluctance to use their power for the public good makes them accessories to a crime
On Uefa’s non-response to allegations by Dutch players of racist abuse from some spectators during open training at Krakow’s Stadion Miejski:
At the very least their complaint should have been given the dignity of proper consideration. If they were indeed mistaken about the nature of the abuse, fair enough. But by reaching an exculpatory judgment on a matter of great sensitivity with what seems like indecent haste, Uefa has made it look as though it is primarily interested in sweeping the matter under the red carpet on which it will parade at the opening ceremony.
