Aragones stirs up another race storm

Spain coach Luis Aragones has dug himself deeper into a hole over his remark about Thierry Henry by now referring to Jose Antonio Reyes as 'a gypsy'.

Aragones faces disciplinary action from the Spanish FA, who have launched an investigation into the coach telling Reyes that he was better than 'that black shit' Henry.

Now, in an interview with Madrid newspaper El Mundo, Aragones tried to defend himself but succeeded only in making things worse.

Aragones said: 'Reyes is ethnically a gypsy, I have got a lot of gypsy and black friends, I consider myself a citizen of the world, I don't care about their skin colour.

'All I did was to motivate the gypsy by telling him he was better than the black.

'I feel I have been the victim of a lynching. All I did was try to motivate Reyes comparing him with Henry and making him see that he was better.

'I didn't use the term 'black' with any racist meaning.

'I'm not going to forget what's happened. A section of the press in this country [Spain] has lynched me and I will not forget that my family have had a very bad time as a consequence of this.'

Arsenal are understood to be unhappy at Aragones' latest remark but will not be taking any formal action.

Reyes is a gypsy, but why does Aragones have to make such an issue of things ? the words come out making him sound like he thinks Gypsies are superior to blacks.

whatever he meant or didn't mean, this bloke really does just love to put his foot in his mouth. :rolleyes:

It's because he's just a silly old fool who likes the attention it brings him. If everyone had the same amount of sense as Henry does, we'd just ignore him.

No, Cygan isn't a Cigan, Reyes is a Cigan and Cygan is a non-Cigan.
