Zenit Fans Request Exclusion of Black and Gay Players

Another controversial event occurred in football this time it’s coming from Russian side Zenit St Petersburg camp as a group of their supporter are requesting black and gay players to be excluded from their squad.

This demand is being dubbed controversial by many but apparently not according to those fans as according to one of them, Dmitry Belinsky, their request can’t be considered as racism acts, giving the situation at Athletic Bilbao as a similar example.

Zenit have actually been known as the ‘whitest’ Russian side, but it was until this summer with the big money arrivals from Hulk and Axel Witsel.
