Russian footballer, Dmitri Tarasov is currently facing a lot of criticism after he revealed a vest with a picture of President Putin with the words “the most polite president” after a match in Turkey.
According to a report, now the footballer would be punished by his club. The behavior of Dmitri Tarasov has been called “unacceptable” in a statement by Lokomotiv Moscow.
On the other hand, Tarasov later defended himself by saying I was just showing support towards my president and I am always with him.
Notably, some social media users felt that the player should focus on winning the match and should not make any political comments.
