UEFA has banned a former official of Azerbaijani side Qarabag for life for incidents of a non-sporting nature and racist behaviour on social media, European soccer’s governing body said on Thursday.

UEFA said in a statement that its Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body had decided to ban Nurlan Ibrahimov, who was the club’s press officer, from exercising any football-related activity for life.

It had also fined Qarabag 100 000 euros ($118,990) and requested that FIFA extend worldwide the life ban.
