Nurlan Ibrahimov said ‘we must kill all Armenians’

An official at the Azerbaijan’s Qarabag soccer club has been provisionally banned by UEFA while he is investigated for potentially “violating basic rules of decent conduct” in comments he made against Armenians on social media, the European soccer body said on Wednesday.

Nurlan Ibrahimov, a public relations and media manager for the Qarabag team has been banned from “exercising any football-related activity,” said the UEFA, the Union of European Football Associations.

“We must kill all Armenians—children women and the elderly. We need to kill them without making a distinction. No regrets. No compassion,” Ibrahimov wrote of his social media platforms last week, prompting Armenia’s National Soccer Federation to call for the expulsion of the entire Qarabag team from UEFA on Saturday.

UEFA said that Ibrahimov had also been charged with racist and discriminatory conduct over the comments. It did not give further details and Ibrahimov did not immediately comment.

“The Qarabag FK official, Mr. Nurlan Ibrahimov, is provisionally banned from exercising any football-related activity immediately effective until the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body decides on the merits of the case,” said a UEFA statement on Wednesday, adding that Ibrahimov had violated the basic rules of decent conduct.

In a statement on Sunday, Qarabag claimed that it had opened an internal disciplinary investigation against Ibrahimov, who was described as its chief press officer, and said that his comments were not supported by the club, Reuters reported Wednesday.

The Azerbaijani team said that Ibrahimov had been traumatized while watching footage of the conflict, including the deaths of women and children in Azeri cities, and that he regretted his comments, according to Reuters.

    To Nurlan Ibrahimov,
    By looking at your photo above, one would think that you are an intelligent and civilized young man. But what a mistake one can make. You are as bad, as uncivilized and barbaric like your ancestors. Shame on you….

    This idiot is yet another pseudo-Turkish Azerbaijani coward who knowingly and deliberately make such racist and derogatory remark about the Armenians and then attempt to explain away their subhuman racist attitude by some lame excuse when caught and punished. Rest-assured such double-talking imbeciles have no remorse in what they say and their regret in doing so is to save their careers.

    These people have institutionally been brainwashed since childhood into believing they belong to a “noble” and “super” race and when they are defeated and humiliated by a nation, they are made to perceive as insignificant, are all of a sudden “traumatized” with psychological meltdown. Their racist outburst is a manifestation of this condition they suffer from. They try to redeem themselves and restore honor, a fake one at that, by calling for the murder of an entire nation. That is to say that they fear Armenians so much that they can feel safe and whole again only by murdering every single one of them. This mentality is the TRUE definition of cowardice.

    In any event, I have no doubt that the likes of this insignificant cockroach are only good at shooting their mouths off to feel good about themselves and in reality they are not even half a man for if there was any manhood left in them they would stick to their words instead of trying to soften their tone by trying to retract their racist statement to secure their livelihood instead. Once a coward always coward!
