FA to probe alleged 'racial abuse' of Bolton players by Millwall footballers
London, Oct. 7 (ANI): The Football Association is going to investigate claims that a few Bolton footballers were racially abused during a match against Millwall.
England under-21 star Marvin Sordell said on Twitter that he and teammates Lee Chung-Yong, Darren Pratley and Benik Afobe were subject to racist remarks at the Den.
"Putting the match aside, its 2012 in england and people are still shouting racial abuse at a football game!? #Shocking," Sky News quoted Sordell, as posting in his tweet.
"Chungy, Pratts, Benik and i had all sorts of things said to us. The police were standing yards away and did nothing," the post added.
The two clubs are also investigating the striker's remarks.
"Millwall and Bolton Wanderers are investigating allegations made by Bolton player Marvin Sordell that he was subjected to racial abuse by an individual while warming up as a substitute during Saturday's Championship clash at The Den," A Millwall spokesman said.
"At this stage, we are trying to find any corroborative evidence we could use to take the allegations forward," he added.
A Bolton spokesman added: "We are now working with Millwall to investigate and the club have informed us that they will speak to the police and match officials. Both clubs remain determined that racist behaviour or language will not be tolerated."
The abuse came a day after the FA released the written reasons for giving John Terry a four-match ban for racially abusing Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand last year, the report said. (ANI)
