FC Rostov head coach says club has enough 'dark-skinned players,' jokes his Malian player may have given teammates Ebola

Racism in Russia? Surely not. They’re whiter-than-white over there. What? Oh.

Asked on Friday if Russian Premier League team FC Rostov would sign Cameroon defender Benoit Angbwa, the team’s coach, Igor Gamula, told reporters the club had “enough dark-skinned players, we’ve got six of the things.”

He added that five of his Russian players were ill, joking, “I’m already worrying it’s Ebola,” because midfielder Moussa Doumbia has a player from Mali.

HahahahHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Hilarious. Because nearly 5,000 people in west Africa have died from Ebola! Which I’m sure we would all agree is so funny.

I bet African players can’t wait for the 2018 World Cup.
