A Swedish referee suspended for making racist remarks against Guinea international goalkeeper Aly Keita says his career is ‘effectively’ over.
Speaking to a Swedish newspaper, Martin Strombergsson regretted remarks made to Keita in a top-flight match last year.
Ostersunds skipper Keita said last month the referee told him “to shut up and go back into his goal so bananas could be thrown at him.”
“I need to find a new employer in the future,” said the 43-year-old official.
This was the Fifa referee’s response to the fact that he has been suspended for the rest of the season, which is only six weeks old. (BBC)
