Neymar banana throwing nonsense was ‘not racist’
So, it turns out the git who threw the banana at Neymar in Brazil’s 2-0 win over Scotland wasn’t being racist at all – just an absolute tool.
The Metropolitan Police and Arsenal have investigated the matter and reckon there’s nothing more to be done after a German student came out and admitted he was responsible for the tw*ttery…
Brazil made no formal complaint and a statement released by the Scottish FA said:
“After consultation with the Metropolitan Police, Arsenal Football Club can confirm that a German teenage tourist has admitted throwing a banana onto the pitch during the Brazil v Scotland International Friendly at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
“The youngster was sitting in the North Bank of Emirates Stadium, an area of the stadium which was occupied by the official allocation of tickets to Brazil supporters, when he threw the banana onto the pitch during the second half of the match.
“The Metropolitan Police is satisfied there was no racist intent and have confirmed that no further action will be taken.”
