Tighten up! It does not hang together

it seems completely incomprehensible that Nicklas Bendtner is being punished harder by UEFA, to promote a betting company on his underpants, than the Bulgarian football federation, which was blameret of a bunch of racist spectators in a test match against England.

the Football association is fined 560.000 dollars in the wake of the scandal, where an English player was exposed to racism. Bulgaria should at the same time play at least a match for the empty grandstands.

the media were quick to compare Bulgaria's fine with the punishment, Bendtner got back at the european championships in 2012, where the former Danish midfielder pulled his pants down and promote the need for a bettingfirma.

then awarded a fine of around dkk 750,000 for his ridiculous stunt, that is nearly 200,000 dollars more than the economic slap in the face, as Bulgaria has conceded.

not together. Bulgaria will be only penalized financially, while the sport and not get any consequences. If UEFA really want racism to life, must be far more stringent sanctions. But it does require that UEFA's political leadership, with president Aleksander Ceferin and his executive committee, among others, the DBU chairman Jesper Møller, sharpens the price tremendously.

Ekstra information, the committee of officials of UEFA, which has dealt with the case of Bulgaria, just followed the rules, which today is in the area. According to the official reports from the match, it was a smaller group of 10-20 spectators in a specific sector in the stadium in Sofia, which stood for the racist chants.

, UEFA has the option to exclude Bulgaria from the upcoming qualifiers. There are precedents. The clash between fans from Liverpool and the Italian Juventus at the Heysel Stadium in Brussels in 1985, it cost the English football expensive. 39 were killed, the majority italians and got English fans to blame. Liverpool were banned from european football in seven years, while the other English clubs were out in the cold in five years.

at the time was the reason. Now is racism on the agenda, but not alone. Football takes up so much, and therefore uses many soccer ball as a battleground for racist or political messages. Most recently, we have seen it in Turkey, where the national team on the field, expressed support for the Turkish military klapjagt on the kurds in northern Syria.

the team did the honors of fighting against both Albania and France, and on twitter, a from the team photos from the locker room, where the whole of the Turkish staff paid tribute to their soldiers. It is a clear violation of article 16, paragraph 2 of the UEFA disciplinary manuals. You must not use football to send political signals.

by investigating the case of the Turkish national team. Turkey, without a doubt, a punishment, and it is expected to fall from 21. november. But there are hardly talking about the exclusion of the EM-qualification.

? Because there is a førstegangsforseelse. How are the rules today, but also here should the UEFA's management to tighten up.

case from Turkey, where Mathias Zanka Jørgensen together with his team-mates in the Fenerbache also sent a greeting to the Turkish military, get hardly any consequences.

Because there was a battle in the Turkish league, falls outside of UEFA's rules. Only a world federation at the end FIFA has the opportunity to sanction, but it is not going to happen, if I otherwise know FIFA right. There is the president of FIFA, Gianni Infantino on too good terms with Turkey's leader, Recep Erdogan.
