Its surely the most pathetic News Story related to the Eurobasket 2011 of Lithuania. Pau Gasol, the ace of the Spanish National Team and LA Lakers, is receiving numerous abuses and even Death threats by Slavic Ultra-Nationalists of FYROM after commiting the… “crime” to call their country FYROM. In other words, the name that FYROM’s governments have agreed to use in ALL the International Organizations.
The Spanish player published in his FB page last Thursday, the following:
This friday we’ll play against FYROM to get a spot in the final and the straight qualification for the Olympics. It won’t be an easy game though, as they managed to knock out Lithuania with a whole arena roaring against them. We will have to be very focus and prepared on performing our game. Thanks a lot for your support!Immediately a large number of FYROM’s fans, full of Hysteria, showed their true racist colours by signing to his page and starting to abuse him. Some of them went further by even writing Death Threats against him!!
Greece and FYROM have been tangled in a ongoing international dispute regarding the latter’s name, after FYROM’s Slavs absurdly keep claiming the Name, history and heritage of ancient Macedonia, an ancient Greek kingdom in Macedonia, Greece.
