English defender Jordi Osei-tutu was forced to leave the football pitch because of racist abuse. A player is not able to continue the match for the German “Bochum”, where he plays on loan.
The player, whose rights belong to Arsenal FC, was subjected to racism during a friendly match with the Swiss club “grasshopper”.
20-year-old tearfully left the field in the first half for racist shouts of the fans from the stands. In the second half, he resumed the game and was substituted in the 53rd minute.
Osei-tutu received support in social networks and thanked the subscribers.
Thank you for supporting me. Very sad that this behavior is still part of the game, but that’s life. It will never stop me in achieving my goals and will not prevent me to play football. I will continue to move on and play for “Bochum”,
– wrote the athlete.
German “Bochum” won “Grasshopper” with the score 3:2.
