Slovenian coach keeps job despite ‘racist’ slur

12 April 2016, 21:38

Ljubljana - Slovenian league leaders Olimpija Ljubljana said on Tuesday they had decided not to sack coach Marko Nikolic despite him reportedly calling Nigerian forward Blessing Eleke a "black idiot".

"After serious considerations and talks with Marko Nikolic and Blessing Eleke we determined that our coach's action was not an act against our forward's race," club president Milan Mandaric said in a statement.

Slovenian media reported that Nikolic made his outburst after Eleke's exuberant celebrations following a late equaliser against Zavrc left Olimpija little time to win the match.

Nikolic also apologised to Eleke, to the club and to its fans for the incident, calling Eleke "an extraordinarily talented player and really a special kid who respects modesty and sincerity".

The 36-year-old Serb coach had joined Olimpija earlier this year after being sacked by Serbia's Partizan Belgrade.
