Angry Al Thani claims 'racism'

10 April 2013 06:17

Malaga president Abdullah Bin Nasser Al Thani launched a furious online outburst after seeing his side crash out of the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund.

The Spanish side appeared to have all but sealed their place in the semi-finals as they led 2-1 with seconds remaining at the Westfalenstadion, but two goals in stoppage time saw the Germans secure a 3-2 win. Felipe Santana scrambled home from an offside position in the dying seconds which triggered an angry outburst from Malaga's Qatari owner.

He claimed on Twitter that his side had been victims of "racism", though it was not immediately clear at whom the accusation was directed, as he wrote on his personal account, @ANAALThani: "I'm sorry to go out this way injustice and racism. I hope to open a thorough investigation UEFA regarding the Spanish club out this way. "

He added: "This is not football, but racism."
