The Hague: Racist yelling at soccer game again

At this week’s soccer game in The Hague between the local club ADO and AJAX Amsterdam, there was a repeat of racist sloganeering.  Whenever the black AJAX player Bazoer touched the ball, jungle yells were heard.  This also happened 25 years ago, when black AJAX goalkeeper Stanley Menzo was the target.  In 2011 the club lost a court case concerning anti-Semitic songs during a game.  The ADO club management has distanced itself from the racist incident and said it will investigate to discover the initiators the shouts.
