SANDEFJORD (VG) (Sandefjord – Vålerenga 0-3) Vålerenga player Ousmane Camara was subjected to racist chants during the match against Sandefjord. The person who made the calls has admitted the incident and will be banned forever.

This is confirmed by Sandefjord’s general manager Espen Bugge Pettersen to VG.

– We are crystal clear on what kind of consequence it must give. As I said: This person is not allowed to enter our arenas again. Neither as a guard nor a spectator, says the Sandefjord boss on Sunday night.

He says that the person in question is a volunteer guard associated with Sandefjord Football for several seasons. According to Espen Bugge Pettersen, there were several who reacted with surprise that it was precisely this person who was behind it.

– Afterwards, he had been waiting for the security chief. Packed down his vest and realized he had sealed his own fate. He confirmed the course of events. We thanked him for good service over a five-year period – until today, says Bugge Pettersen to VG at 11.30 pm on Sunday.

Sandefjord’s general manager further says that the guard admitted to having shouted “monkey” at Camara, with a swear word in front, according to Bugge Pettersen.

– Vålerenga bench and some players had reacted to it. Then it was confirmed what he said, he says.


Camara has posted a picture with a heart-shaped Norwegian flag, with the comment:

– No one hates other people because of skin color, background or religion when they are born. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can learn to love. Love comes more naturally to the heart than the opposite, he writes – a famous quote from Nelson Mandela.

He also thanks for the support. The image of the hashtag #stopracism.

Vålerenga veteran Johan Lædre Bjørdal (34) was a substitute for the guests and took action. He roared back to the stands and pointed to the red “Stop” ribbon all the players in the Eliteserien have carried around their arm this round, which is part of the Norwegian Top Football, the Norwegian Football Association and the Norwegian Sports Confederation.

– Both I and the others at Vålerenga reacted. When the guard repeated what he was shouting at Camara, he was removed. Bugge also stopped by the locker room and complained, which is good, and NFF has been notified. Let’s hope we get a stop for this here, Lædre Bjørdal reports to VG on Sunday night.
