The past decade, and especially the past year, has been accompanied by quite a few serious racist incidents in European football fields. On New Year's Eve Andre Onna, Ajax's vaunted goalie, once again brought the burning issue to the series, as part of an extensive Netherlands interview.

"In my first year at Ajax we reached the European League finals and have had an amazing season," said the 23-year-old goalkeeper. "After this year, all the white players in the team were distracted and received attractive offers from the big teams in Europe.

"But I only got one offer, and it also came down because I realized that the president of this club just wasn't interested in a black goalkeeper. They were afraid to sign me not because I'm not good enough, they were just afraid to sign me."

"Racism is still here and felt in all stands and games," the Cameroonian goalkeeper added, "I have to deal with hard racism in almost every foreign game. I hear the curses and the teasing. And also the songs. Went nowhere. "
