thinks that what happened in


match against


will be an important incident in antiracism battle.

The match was canceled by the teams after the racist act of one the referee’s in his conversation with Basaksehir’s coach.

At first the coach was sent off but when the players found out about the reason they refused to take part in the match and left the pitch.

"It's a very sad situation,"

Tottenham boss Mourinho said ahead of the Europa League visit of Royal Antwerp.

"Every form of racism has to be fought. It should never be accepted. I'm very sad because we don't want that in football.

"I know the referee [Ovidiu Hategan] personally, not the fourth official. [Hategan is] a very good guy and very good referee.

"To be involved, not directly, in a game that will become iconic is not a nice thing. The fourth official, only he can make his feelings clear. Of course, he made an unacceptable mistake.

"Only he can open his heart and apologize. Everyone in football, we have our responsibilities and if we make mistakes, you accept your responsibility.

"That game will become iconic, a Champions League game stopped, but hopefully it will never happen again."
