Anderlecht boss Vincent Kompany revealed that he was left disgusted after being on the receiving end of racist abuse from Club Brugge fans. The incident took place during the 2-2 draw between the two sides on Monday. Kompany revealed that a few of the Anderlecht staff, as well as players, were targeted. Club Brugge later condemned the abuse on its social media.
“I leave this match disgusted. My staff and I were insulted during the whole game. Racist insults that were aimed at the players too,” Anderlecht boss Vincent Kompany said. “The day ends badly. I’m going to get together with my staff and the people who matter to me. We should not still have to go through this.”
“These individuals are not representative of the values and norms of our club and have no place in Jan Breydel Stadium,” Club Brugge tweeted after the game.
“Things like this don’t belong here. Of course, we can’t change that much, but it has to come from the Pro League and the people themselves,” Anderlecht defender Wesley Hoedt said. “An icon like Vincent Kompany has been insulted because of his skin color… Enough is enough … take real action now.”
