FIFA receives complaint of racism against Keshi

ZURICH (AP) - FIFA has received a complaint of racism against Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi after he said a rival was ``a white dude'' who didn't know about Africa and should go back to his native Belgium.

FIFA declined to comment further and only said Wednesday it had received the complaint against Keshi, who led Nigeria to this year's African Cup title.

Malawi coach Tom Saintfiet said the Football Association of Malawi reported Keshi for comments apparently made on an African TV show, where Keshi said Saintfiet was ``crazy'' and ``mad'' for suggesting the Nigerian city of Calabar was unsafe for a World Cup qualifier between the countries.

Keshi went on to say the Belgian ``is not an African person, he is a white dude. He should go back to Belgium.''
