Azeri football official banned by UEFA after calling for all Armenians to be exterminated


(He had tweeted that all Armenians, including the elderly, women and children, without exception, should be killed, without mercy, as they would otherwise kill all Azerbaijanis.)

On Saturday, the Football Federation of Armenia had called for Qarabag to be expelled from European football for comments Ibrahimov allegedly made about Armenians, which it said he had subsequently deleted.

Qarabag said in a statement on Sunday that it had opened an internal disciplinary case against Ibrahimov, described as its chief press officer, and said that his comments were not supported by the club.
