Player Sent Home For Threatening To "Burn All Of You [Koreans], Bunch Of Retards"

Last week we told you about Voula Papachristou, the Greek triple jumper whose xenophobic, right-wing attitude got her booted from the Olympics. Today, Swiss soccer player Michel Morganella has been sent home after he decided his Twitter followers should hear his own batshit remarks.


Morganella and his Swiss side lost 2-1 yesterday at the hands of the South Koreans. After the match, Morganella took to Twitter to call his opponents a "bunch of retards." "Je les tous Defonce Coréens, allez vous tous Bruler, bande de trisos," he wrote. Roughly translated, "I will smash all the Koreans, go burn all of you, bunch of retards." Morganella did apologize, but his account has since been deleted and he's headed back to Switzerland after being kicked off the team.

And I thought the Swiss were supposed to be peaceful.
