Hungary’s foreign minister called European soccer’s governing body UEFA a “pitiful” organisation on Saturday for its decision to order Hungary to play its next two games behind closed doors due to its fans’ discriminatory behaviour.

“The committee that makes a decision like that is a pitiful and cowardly body. They should be ashamed of themselves,” Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on his Facebook page.

“Just like in communism: no need for evidence, it’s enough to have unanimous reports.”

UEFA on Friday ordered Hungary to play its next two internationals with no fans due to discriminatory behaviour in the crowd during European Championship matches in Budapest.
