FIFA has opened an investigation on the President of the Serbian Football Association Slavisa Kokeza over statements he made in an interview to the BBC accusing them of bias towards his country.
Kokeza made the comments after Friday’s 2-1 loss to Switzerland, claiming that Serbia were victims of a “brutal robbery” and that he was unhappy a German referee had been appointed for a game involving Switzerland which has a predominantly German-speaking population.
Most notably was the failure of the match official and video assistant referee (VAR) to award a penalty to Serbia when Aleksandar Mitrovic was wrestled to the ground by two Swiss players.
Meanwhile, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri, are also being investigated over gestures made during Switzerland’s goal celebrations.
