Lucas Torreira and Diego Godin have come out to support Edinson Cavani after his recent ban for racism. Both players recently posted a copy of a statement from the Uruguay Player Association (A.F.U.) which slams the English FA for committing a serious injustice.
According to them, the arbitrary conduct of the English Football Association must be condemned because what they did was far from condemning racism.
Thye added that the English FA has itself committed a discriminatory act against the culture and the way of life of the Uruguayan people.
It read, “Firstly, we must condemn the arbitrary conduct of the English Football Association. Far from condemning racism, the English FA has itself committed a discriminatory act against the culture and the way of life of the Uruguayan people,”
“Edinson Cavani has never committed any conduct that could be interpreted as racist. We would therefore like to publicly defend Edinson Cavani’s impeccable character and of course our country’s culture.
“We request the FA to immediately overturn the sanction imposed on Edinson Cavani and reinstate his good name and honour in the world that has been so unfairly tarnished by this reprehensible decision.”
