The LA Galaxy announced Friday the team released Serbian midfielder Aleksandar Katai following racist Instagram posts made by his wife, Tea. The posts, which have since been taken down, mocked protests related to the death of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis last week.

Katai later posted on Instagram calling the posts "a mistake from my family" and saying he took full responsibility. He apologized "for the pain these posts have caused the LA Galaxy family and all allies in the fight against racism.".
