The incident must have happened ten minutes before the end of the first half, when Oren Horton’s Sehu Leroy Sella Nielsen boosted the home team’s lead to 4-0 and celebrated in front of the Arendal fans, according to Agderposten.
And the newspaper wrote that many of those present at the stadium reported that appeals were lodged against the player, and referee Hermann As confirmed the expulsion of the audience.
Arendal’s sporting director Borg Vidge says the club condemns all forms of racism and incitement.
– We’ve received allegations about what should have happened, and I can’t comment on whether that was true or not. I just know Arendal Football as a club cares about diversity and respect and will be well represented both on and off the field, he told Lagerposten.
The newspaper was in contact with the Arendal supporters club, who said they were not aware of the situation, but would conduct an internal investigation. General Manager Kjetil Ramberg at Ørn Horten says they have received an apology from management at Arendal.
Nielsen says three away fans were waiting for him after the match.
– They were apologizing, and I finished the case, he tells the newspaper.
