In addition to the suspension, an independent group, which is responsible for providing penalties and punishments within the FIVB tournament, paid the Serbian volleyball government about $ 22,000. Based on the panel, the FIVB will provide funding for a project dedicated to preventing discriminatory practices and / or to fund cultural and educational programs.
Listed since the account was closed, Djurdjevic apologized for his actions. “I know my mistake and as soon as I finish the game, I apologize to all the Thai team.”
“I just want to tell my team members the message: ‘Now we are going to start playing like them,’ I will not respect anyone,” he added.
“It does not mean any disrespect. Of course, it is unfortunate. Everything ended up as a simple misunderstanding, and a friendly situation between the players of the two teams,” the team statement continued.
“Forgiveness is a minority as a person. But Djurdjevic and the National Volleyball Team representing their country in government games have FIVB government rules and those rules should be upheld to maintain trust and set standards for the world,” the petition said.
The FIVB endorsed Djurdjevic’s ban as “final,” adding that they “are based on developing understanding, solidarity and solidarity against any form of discriminatory behavior.”
They added that “FIVB will continue to work diligently in all member states to ensure that these standards are passed in all countries.”
