Paul Mbong and Andre Scicluna make amends with message against racism

Following allegations about racist remarks, Birkirkara striker Paul Mbong and Senglea Athletic defender Andre Scicluna took to social media to announce their reconciliation. Going back to December of last year, Birkirkara FC had written a formal letter to the MFA to investigate allegations made by Mbong of having suffered racial abuse from the Senglea player.

The two players however met over coffee and allegedly clarified the case being a misunderstanding. Scicluna stated that ‘we are both hoping to send a clear and powerful message of respect and sportsmanship’, with the two hashtags Respect and SayNoToRacism captioned in the photo. The incident had happened 85 minutes into the game when Mbong tackled Scicluna, with Scicluna receiving a red card and Mbong receiving the yellow card a few seconds later for passing remarks.

Many took to social media to address the situation, calling for governmental action in regards to health restrictions. People, including CEO of Hugo’s Group Malta Luke Chetcuti, highlighted how given these regulations, people still met outside regulated bars and businesses where regulations are not necessarily going to be adhered to.

The news follows updates to reopening the entertainments sector, with the proposed roadmap eliciting quite a lot of criticism. Many are still calling to manage the situation better, as illegal gatherings are being increasingly reported.
