The matchday in the Dutch division of honor this weekend should be deliberately put into action against Rasissmus. Last week, Rotterdam player Ahmad Mendes Moreira had been insulted and insulted at the second division match Den Bosch versus Excelsior Rotterdam, which had caused much outrage in the Netherlands. Even bond coach Ronald Koeman, formerly a teammate van Bastens at Oranje, had then clearly to speak.
"Every time he (Racism) is tackled with kid gloves," Koeman said. "You have to leave the field, we would do that as a Dutch team," said Koemann.
