“What happened is scandalous and we will ask UEFA for sanctions, even if it means not continuing the competition,” Surbatovic said in a statement.

“We are sure that they will be punished. They have already responded to our appeal to remove the so-called journalist from Albania from the championship.”

“We will demand from UEFA to punish the federations of both selections. We do not want to participate in that, but if UEFA does not punish them, we will think how will we proceed.”

In a separate incident, UEFA fined Serbia after its fans after brandished controversial flags to taunt other countries.

The European governing body claimed that the Serbians displayed a banner that “transmitted a provocative message unfit for a sports event” and for throwing objects inside the stadium.


“We were punished for isolated cases and our fans behaved much better than the others,” Surbatovic said.

“One fan was punished for racist insults and we don’t want it to be attributed to others.”
