Wolves release statement after incident

Published

on

Wolverhampton Wanderers have released a statement insisting they are working with the FA and Millwall FC following reports of racism during the 2-2 draw at The Den on Boxing Day.

A large number of Wolves fans reported hearing racist chanting from the home end directed towards Alfred N’Diaye and Romain Saiss, and a full-scale investigation has been launched in an attempt to find the perpetrators.

The incident will come as a blow to ‘Kick It Out’ campaigners, with English football working together to eradicate such disgusting behaviour from the game.

Reports also suggest that teenage striker Bright Enobakhare was subject to abuse whilst warming-up.

Wolves urged anybody with information to come forward.

“As a club, we are fiercely committed to stamping out all types of discrimination within the game and are presently working with the FA and Millwall Football Club to investigate all allegations of racial abuse,” the club said.

“We would like to encourage anybody who has further information to contact the club.”

The Verdict

What a sad new story to emerge from the Football League on Boxing Day.

Reports of racism are an extremely serious issue, and are something no player should be subject to at any level of the game or society.

Just as the English game moves away from such medieval behaviour, new scandals consistently emerge.

The FA and both clubs will now conduct a thorough investigation into the incident.

What should be the punishment if club’s are found guilty of such intolerable behaviour?
