Nantes Striker Mohamed Fined For Refusing To Wear Rainbow Jerse

Nantes striker Mostafa Mohamed has been fined by his club after refusing to play at the weekend in a protest against an anti-homophobia campaign in France’s Ligue 1.


The club says Mohamed will be punished financially for refusing to play against Toulouse for personal reasons at a time when FC Nantes are fighting to avoid relegation.


Nantes added that the money would be donated to a charity that supports members of the LGBTQ community who are victims of discrimination.

The numbers on shirts of all players in France’s top two divisions, as well as armbands worn by captains and officials, were rainbow-coloured as the French league staged a campaign against homophobia.


The rainbow-adorned shirts will be sold at auction with the proceeds going to three charities active in fighting LGBTQ discrimination.
