After winning the title with Club Brugge, Noa Lang sang along with a group of supporters: “even better dead than Sportingjood”, it sounded. The images went around on social media and there was immediately a lot of comment.
A day later, Noa Lang apologizes on Instagram. “I am a child of a Surinamese father and a Dutch mother,” he writes. “Racism and prejudice are well known to me.”
“After winning the title, I sang with all my enthusiasm together with the supporters, who I was able to meet for the first time myself. As an ex-Ajax player, I know the nicknames of football teams like no other.”
“I didn’t want to offend anyone with that. For me this is now closed and I will not come back to it”, he concludes.
