Germany's Asamoah berates Rostock's racist fans

BERLIN, Oct 2 (Reuters) - Germany striker Gerald Asamoah, who faced racist chants from fans at a German cup match in the eastern city of Rostock last month, said racist supporters had ruined the country's image abroad.

'Many people abroad associate Germany with racism,' the 27-year-old Schalke 04 and national player told Kicker soccer magazine. 'The World Cup astounded the world that the Germans could be different. Even the people of Ghana were pleased.'

The German football association (DFB) fined Hansa Rostock's regional league side 20,000 euros ($25,410) last month after their fans chanted racist slogans at Asamoah, a German national who emigrated to Germany as a child.

'Now these monkey noises mean that people in Africa have that image of Germany again which was around before the World Cup. These idiots have done that,' he said, in comments published on the magazine's website on Monday.

'They are people who have not moved with the times.'

The player suffered a double fracture to his leg last week during his team's UEFA Cup defeat by Nancy. His injuries are likely to keep him out of action for months.

Racism has been in the spotlight in the east of Germany. The far-right National Democratic Party (NPD) won parliamentary seats last month in an election in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the state where Rostock is located.
