Tv football analyst won't apologise for anti-Moroccan comments
Outspoken Dutch television football analyst Johan Derksen says he won't take back comments made on television about Moroccan players spoiling amateur football.
Derksen, 67, told television programme Voetbal Inside on Monday that some amateur clubs no longer function or are disappearing because their percentage of players with a Moroccan background is too high. 'I will be dismissed as a racist but I really don't give a damn,' he told the show.
Some clubs have been damaged because they are located in areas where many Moroccan families live, he said. Moroccan players dominate and the Dutch boys go to other clubs. 'They don't want to work with nine Moroccan lads who don't dare to shower naked,' he said.
