Dutch soccer club criticized for UAE training camp
by Mike Corder
A Dutch soccer club is facing criticism for traveling to Abu Dhabi for a training camp without a player who was barred from the Arab emirate because he is Israeli.
Vitesse Arnhem, which is in second place in the Dutch league, was told a day before it flew to Abu Dhabi on Sunday that defender Dan Mori would not be allowed into the country after being given assurances he would be admitted, club spokeswoman Ester Bal said Monday.
Officials in the United Arab Emirates could not immediately be reached for comment.
