Nigerian football star Leon Balogun has once again charged the German football authorities to bring the fans who racially targeted him during a Bundesliga match to book.
Balogun, who is German-born, switched international allegiance to Nigeria in 2014 and has been a household name ever since.
Last month the player made a public statement on racial abuse targeted at him from fans of Bundesliga club, Hannover including a teenager.
In a chat with BBC Balogun said, “This boy, he wasn’t even 12 and He shouldn’t be exposed to those kind of people and the nonsense they produce.
“I hope they will find those people because it wasn’t a bunch of fans, it was between 6 and 12 people.
“So I hope they will find them and make an example; so that they’re going to ban them and maybe the rest of the racism that is obviously there in football will be more scared and have more respect especially for the players but also for the authorities, because the authorities have to show that they’re working strict against racism.”
