Kabani claimed that it was a word that was blatantly interpreted in English, but in Spanish it was not a derogatory nickname.

However, he humbly accepted the sentence.

On the other hand, the Uruguayan players' association said: "We are against the conviction ... because the English association not only did not condemn racism - in this action it itself caused discrimination against Uruguayan culture and our way of life. The punishment shows that the English association has prejudices, and is dogmatic and ethnocentric - And allows for only one worldview and one crucial interpretation of things, no matter how wrong it may be.



”Kabani did not take any action that might be construed as racist.

He only used a very common expression in Latin America, which is made as an appeal to a beloved friend.

To interpret this as racism, it is discrimination and misunderstanding of Uruguayan culture - and ignorance, and in fact racism against us.

That is why we are protecting Kabani and his undisputed character. "

Diego Godin is also supportive
