Sheikh reiterates 'racism' claim

Malaga owner Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser Al-Thani has again claimed racism was the primary factor behind his side's dramatic Champions League exit at the hands of Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night. Two injury time goals gave Dortmund the most improbable of passages to the semi-final of Europe's most prestigious competition, inspiring Malaga's clearly irate Qatari owner to launch a stunning attack via his Twitter feed.

On Wednesday he went further, suggesting that European football's governing body has specifically set out to harm Malaga's prospects in the competition. Earlier this season, European football's governing body said Manuel Pellegrini's menwould be banned from continental competition should they qualify in any of the next four seasons because of the club's debts. Al-Thani is likely to be asked to explain his inflammatory comments to UEFA officials, made following a night of high drama in Dortmund's Signal Iduna Park, to UEFA officials.
