Callum Hudson-Odoi has taken the fight against racism to the next level by sending out an inspirational message.
“I don’t want to dwell on it too much, but the racial abuse that me, Raheem, Danny Rose and a few others got that day was unacceptable.
“To be hearing stuff from the crowd saying, ‘You’re a monkey’, or, ‘Ooh-ah-ah’. Stuff like that, for me it’s, why? Why do that evil? How can you even racially talk about someone else, or discriminate against them because they’re a different colour to you?
“If anything, the chants backfired. When it happened during the game, it didn’t put me off my game, but instead made me more motivated to beat them and make sure we won.
“I had so much respect for Raheem when he scored and did the celebration and the Instagram post after. But also, no player should ever go through the racism and discrimination Raheem has had to go through. It’s not right.”
“Can we just please find a way to stop it in the game, and just in general?” Hudson-Odoi continued.
“Just everybody stop the racial abuse. I just want to live my life. I just want to play football and make my family proud.”
