UEFA has banned Albanian player Mirlind Daku on Sunday for two games at Euro 2024, after leading fans in nationalist chants.
European football’s governing body released a statement confirming Daku was banned ‘for using sports events for manifestations of a non-sporting nature, and for bringing the sport of football into disrepute’.
Daku took a megaphone after Albania’s 2-2 draw with Croatia on Wednesday in Hamburg, and joined in chanting slogans against Serbia and Macedonia.
UEFA issued a statement confirming Daku has been suspended for two matches for ‘failing to comply with the general principles of conduct, for violating the basic rules of decent conduct, for using sports events for manifestations of a non-sporting nature and for bringing the sport of football into disrepute.’
Albania plays its final Group B match on Monday against Spain – a game that could prove decisive for the runner’s-up position, in the group.
