PARIS – Racist-style blunders by Daniel Bravo, a former PSG footballer and Parma, now BeIN Sport's technical commentator, after his first goal in the French soccer championship by Cape Verdean striker Nuno Da Costa in Strasbourg-Reims. Daniel Bravo complimented Da Costa in his own way, saying: "Not bad for a black …".
Of course his statements were received very badly in France and Bravo was harshly criticized on social networks. Shortly thereafter, the former Parma footballer apologized to Da Costa. The Cape Verde bomber has accepted his apology: "No problem, it can happen. Work too much … ".
Bravo, when he ended up in the storm for having talked about an alleged Parma match.
In June 2012, in an interview with the French edition of the Yahoo! web portal Sport, Daniel Bravo said that in 1997, when he was playing in Parma, his companions would have come to an agreement with the opposing team during the interval of the "last important match of their team" of the Serie A 1996-1997 championship to maintain the partial result of the meeting.
As Wikipedia writes, despite the former Paris Saint Germain footballer never stated what the match in which the alleged match-making episode would have been and even mentioned any footballer who may have been indicted in the affair, according to an article that partially transcribed the interview in French to Bravo and which was published in the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera (edition of 18 June 2012), the race could have been the one held between Parma and the then leaders Juventus – who had six points more of the Emilian training on nine to play – arbitrated by Pierluigi Collina and ended in a draw with a goal by side.
The testimony of Bravo was subsequently denied by his former team-mates Mario Stanić and Enrico Chiesa , as well as by the then Juventus footballer Nicola Amoruso. On that occasion, Parma ended up in second place in the championship at 63 points, behind the Turin team champion of Italy (65), which drew its last two matches played in the league.
