Fritz Korbach's "Football Language"

Date: 1991
Quote
: Referred to Ajax winger, Bryan Roy, as a "short n*****" and Brazilian striker, Romario, as "that coffee bean of PSV."
Who said it: Fritz Korbach

Though he would later claim that he was just speaking in "football language," former Holland manager, Fritz Korbach was really just being flat-out bigoted when he spoke down about then-Ajax winger, Bryan Roy, and the former Brazilian superstar, Romario. It's not "football language," Fritz, it's just "being racist." Thankfully, Korbach was suspended a match for his remarks by Holland's governing sports body.
