Shakhtar Donetsk's Taison handed ban for reaction to racist insults

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Taison was sent off for his reaction to racist insults in a Ukranian league match against Dynamo Kiev earlier this month.

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Taison has been handed a one-match ban after he was sent off in a Ukrainian league match against visitors Dynamo Kiev earlier this month for reacting to racist insults from the crowd, the Ukranian Association of Football (UAF) has announced.

A video of the incident on Nov. 10 showed the 31-year-old Brazilian midfielder stick his finger up at a section occupied by Dynamo fans and then kick the ball into the stands, before leaving the field in tears.

The UAF have sanctioned Dynamo to play a home match behind closed doors, as well as a small fine, and will be on probation for the rest of the season.

In 2015, Dynamo Kiev were ordered by UEFA to play two European matches behind closed doors after four black spectators were attacked at their stadium during a match against Chelsea.

Taison will miss Shakhtar's Ukranian Premier League match against Lviv on Friday.

Footballer's Union FIFPro said in a statment via Twitter: "We are very disappointed by the decision of the Ukrainian FA to hand Taison a one-match ban.

"Sanctioning a victim of racial abuse is beyond comprehension and it plays into the hands of those who promote this kind of disgraceful behaviour."
