Didier Zokora Responds to Racist Abuse With Swift Kick to Emre’s Family Jewels (Video)


Didier Zokora Responds to Racist Abuse With Swift Kick to Emre's Family Jewels (Video)This can’t be what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. or Sepp Blatter had in mind. In a Turkish soccer game on Sunday, a victim of racist abuse kicked his tormentor where it hurts most.

Trabzonspor’s Didier Zokora landed a boot between the legs of Fenerbache’s Emre on Sunday. It has been widely interpreted as revenge for Emre using racially abusive taunts against Zokora during a game earlier this season.

Emre was suspended two games by the Turkish FA, but Zokora’s memory runs longer than that. Not only did he snub Emre during the pre-game hand-shake. He also exacted his own revenge during the game. Zokora was shown a yellow card for the “challenge,” which has gone viral.

Earlier this season, Blatter caused a storm by saying that racism has been eliminated from soccer and incidents of racial abuse should be settled with a postgame hand shake.

The FIFA president hasn’t commented on Zokora’s kick. It could be because he’s still cringing after watching the video.
