Croatia Player Dejan Lovren Banned For Insulting Spain - Video

Croatia Player Dejan Lovren Banned For Insulting Spain  - Video
1/11/2019
Croatia defender Dejan Lovren has been banned for one international match over comments he made on social media about opponents Spain following his side's 3-2 Nations League win in November.
Lovren posted a video on Instagram where he appeared to brag about elbowing Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos and made insulting comments about the Spain team following the game on November 15.

 He also told reporters after the match that Spain were 'rude on the pitch' and bad losers.

Following Croatia's 3-2 win over Spain, Lovren took part in an Instagram Live in the dressing room afterwards.

Still wearing his Croatia kit, Lovren says in Croatian:

Haha! 3-2! Go ahead and talk now buddy. Buddy! They are a bunch of p******. 

He then covered the Spain flag stitched onto his shirt and said 'only this side is worthy', pointing to the Croatian flag.

UEFA said that Lovren had fallen foul of a clause in its disciplinary rules which penalises anyone 'whose conduct is insulting or otherwise violates the basic rules of decent conduct.'

He is suspended for Croatia's next UEFA competition match, which is the Euro 2020 qualifiers at home to Azerbaijan in March 21.  

UEFA also fined Croatia 13,000 euros (N5m) over charges that fans threw objects and blocked stairways at Zagreb’s Maksimir Stadium.

Despite the win, Croatia finished bottom of Group A4 after losing their final game to England and were relegated to League B of UEFA's new competition.
