The vice-president of a Serbian football team who pelted racist abuse at opponent Everton Luiz has said he should 'go back to Brazil and show your dark fingers to them'.

In a shocking Facebook post, which was later deleted, Jelena Polic slammed the Partizan player, who left the football pitch in tears yesterday.

The FK Rada executive wrote: 'The whole story about this "big" Everton player and the stuff that happened on the game between Rad and Partizan is biased and sad.

'Apparently we have to respect others more than ourselves, to be proud when in the 'TITO' team (Partizan) has 7 foreign players. and then fake tears, fake 'I love Serbia and I see it as my house' story.

'Well, why don't you go back to Brazil and show your dark fingers to them and swear on brazilians mothers and everything will be ok.'

In yesterday's match against Partizan, FK Rada fans made monkey noises and viciously heckled Ruiz whenever he was in possession of the ball.

The Brazilian player retaliated by showing his middle finger to the angry crowd.

The supporters also unveiled a poster that insulted the footballer and caused the match to finish early.

Luiz walked off the pitch in tears and was embraced by goalkeeper Filip Kljajic as the game ended.

Luiz told MailOnline: 'There have been many episodes, and not just in Serbia, but in other countries here in Europe.

'The fans were shouting calling me a monkey, imitating the animal the whole time. When I got close, I could here it more loudly and I became very angry.

'But even so I had to carry on playing and representing my team.'
