Malaga owner may face Uefa action following outspoken remarks after Borussia Dortmund comeback
Thursday 11 April 2013
The Qatari billionaire who owns Malaga could face disciplinary action from Uefa after tweeting that his team's exit from the Champions League was the result of racism.
Abdullah Bin Nasser Al-Thani's comments came after the Spanish club missed out on a place in the semi-finals when Borussia Dortmund scored an injury-time winner from what looked to be an offside position.
"We were targeted from the beginning of the season by corrupt Uefa and based on racism," Al-Thani tweeted after the 3-2 defeat. Malaga had already clashed with Uefa after being banned from European club competitions next season for failing to pay player wages and tax bills on time.
