Malawi coach Tom Saintfiet to drag Keshi to FIFA for Racism


By CitizensPlatform

Malawi coach Tom Saintfiet is to report Stephen Keshi to Fifa after the Nigeria coach called him “a white dude who should go back to Belgium”.

The pair have been arguing since Malawi asked Fifa to move next monthโ€™s crucial World Cup qualifier from Calabar for safety reasons.

Saintfiet said: “It is unacceptable that any person says these words โ€“ it is clear racism.

“It is 100% sure that my lawyers will lodge a complaint with Fifa.”

The row erupted earlier this month when the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) wrote to Fifa, seeking a new venue for their 7 September Group F qualifier away to the Super Eagles โ€“ a match which Malawi, who trail Nigeria by two points, must win to progress to the play-offs.
