According to the USA Today Sports, a Los Angeles Galaxy player’s wife has made ‘racist and violent’ comments on social media. The incident happened on Instagram.
Tea Katai, who is married to Galaxy winger Aleksandar Katai, made the comments at some point this week. Now, Katai and the team will have a meeting on Thursday.
During their meeting, the team is expected to ‘determine the next steps.’
“Earlier today [Wednesday], the LA Galaxy were made aware of a series of racist and violent social media posts by Tea Katai, the wife of LA Galaxy midfielder Aleksandar Katai,” the team said in a statement. “The LA Galaxy stands firmly against racism of any kind, including that which suggests violence, or seeks to demean the efforts of those in pursuit of racial equality.
“The LA Galaxy stand with communities of color, and especially the Black community, in the protests and fight against systemic racism, social inequality, bigotry, and violence. The LA Galaxy will hold a meeting with Katai on Thursday, June 4 and will determine [the] next steps. Now is the time to reflect on our role in helping fight racism in our community.”
The 29-year-old Katai, who signed with the Galaxy on New Year’s Eve, has made two starts with the team. However, since March, the league has been shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 100,000 people in the United States.
In those two starts, he played in 117 minutes.
According to the story, there was a call, which was written in Serbia, to ‘kill’ protestors. She also allegedly called the protestors, ‘disgusting cattle.’
Before coming to the Galaxy, he spent two seasons with the Chicago Fire. He had 18 goals in 62 appearances, including 51 starts.
In his MLS career, he has made 64 appearances, including 53 starts. He has scored 18 goals in 4,648 minutes.
He has also competed for FK Vojvodina, FK Palić, Olympiacos F.C., OFI Crete F.C., Platanias F.C., Red Star Belgrade, and Deportivo Alavés before coming to the United States.
