UEFA’s recent decision sanction the Hungarian Football Association (MLSZ) due to crowd behaviour seems “even more pitiful” in view of video footage that has come to light since, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Monday, on the sidelines of a meeting of his European counterparts in Brussels.

As we wrote before, UEFA fined MLSZ 100,000 euros and ordered the national eleven to play the next three home matches behind closed doors, with the penalty pertaining to the third match suspended for two years, citing discriminatory behaviour by Hungarian fans during the European soccer championship in Budapest and Munich.

Szijjártó said the footage showed “no organised or large-scale discriminative expressions or behaviour in the stadium”.

The matches in Budapest were played to a full house and “amid a good football atmosphere”, he insisted.

The minister noted that UEFA had imposed smaller sanctions in earlier cases, noting a fan pointed a laser at the Danish goalkeeper’s head in the semi-final.

“Shall we consider UEFA’s disciplinary committee a serious body? You cannot talk about that decision calmly,” Szijjártó said.

  1. One individual pointing a laser pen at the Danish was appalling and for that as well as people booing the Danish National Anthem and the UK FA was fined appx 29,000 euros. The incident involving Hungarian match attendees was racist chanting by not one individual but a number of individuals. The two incidents are not comparable. The sanction was appropriate and Szijjártó should be condemning this behaviour, not trying to defend it.

  2. The actions by U.E.F.A. – which is in reality a bunch of E.U. ‘brown tongues’ – against Hungary demonstrate (yet again) that Brussels and the E.U. institutions based therein (viz. E.U. Commission / E.U. Parliament) are scared shitless about Hungary.

    There is NO DOUBT WHATSOEVER that these Marxist / Socialist / Communist worshippers of sexual deviants and all things unholy (including ILLEGAL MUSLIM MIGRANTS) will do anything to derail Hungary’s present democratically-elected Government.

    Once the Government has been RE-ELECTED next May for another FOUR YEAR TERM (boy, will that give those idiots in Brussels and that insane ‘sausage coalition’ the shits !) then we’ll see who is laughing …..

    As the old saying goes, “He who laughs loud, laughs best.”

  3. The best laugh is your comment. The EU scared of Hungary? Yeah right. Dream on dreamer.

  4. AlfredE. Neuman strikes again under the guise of BestLaughs. Whatever name he uses, his foolishness burns so bright that it is visible from outer space.

  5. Nice one Anonymous and Astronaut 😂 Whatever guise AlfredE.Neuman goes under it’s the same old guff he comes out with 😂

  6. Just to assuage that pitiful Hungarian victim complex, read this from today:
    England risk being handed a stadium ban by Uefa after the governing body opened an investigation into the chaotic and violent scenes at Wembley around the Euro 2020 final, meaning one or more of their Nations League games next year could be played behind closed doors.

  7. If the EU Court follows the pacts that were signed, they should acquit Hungary. Both healthcare and education were excluded. There is no discrimination against adults who chose a different life style and these minority should always be protected. However, children should not be brainwashed. Children under 18 cannot vote or drink, therefore they deserve protection.

  8. 1. THERE IS FREEDON OF SPEECH IN HUNGARY.
    2. PLAY THE GAMES WITHOUT SPECTATORS IN A SMALL STADIUM. IT WILL BE MORE ECONOMICAL AND IT
    MAKES NO DIFFERENCE WHERE THE GAME IS PLAYED.
