Bafana Bafana star Bongani Zungu has issued his support to Rangers teammate Glen Kamara with the alleged racist statement made by Slavia Prague's Ondrej Kudela now being revealed.
Zungu was involved in the controversial altercation during their UEFA Europa League clash last week as Kudela was pictured covering his mouth before uttering a statement to Kamara.
The South Africa international was alongside the pair when the incident occurred which clearly riled up both players before the scuffle ensued between the two squads.
"During yesterday’s match with Slavia Prague, Kudela was arguing with a Rangers player and after I tried to intervene, he told me to shut up and then said ‘one second my friend’," Kamara's recent statement read.
"He then came over to me covering his mouth, leaning into my ear, he uttered the words – ‘You’re a f****** monkey, you know you are’.

The statement continued: "I was shocked and horrified to hear such racist abuse from a professional football player.
"Kudela’s claim he simply swore at me and said ‘You’re a f****** guy’ is a complete utter lie, which does not stand up to any form of scrutiny.
"Kudela's actions were deliberate and premeditated, but he was loud enough for my team-mate Bongani Zungu to hear what was said."
A video of the incident has since gone viral on social media, see below.
