Willian wants more action taken against racism

Chelsea enjoyed a favorable outing against Tottenham Hotspur last Sunday.

New boss Frank Lampard finally got his first win against the big 6 and it was even sweeter because it came against his old boss Jose Mourinho and his bitter North London rivals Tottenham’s team!

However, what grabbed all the headlines as it should was the racism incident in the match where Antonio Rudiger was racially abused. The culprit is yet to be apprehended in this case and Chelsea’s man of the match versus Tottenham, Willian wants a more stern fight against such vile behaviour.

“It’s a shame. It’s very disappointing, I don’t know how people can think like that. In their team, they [Tottenham] have black players as well,” the Brazil international told Sky Sports.

“I really don’t understand what they think or why they do these kinds of things. I think we have to find, together, a way to stop this. It’s a shame for everyone.

“Inside the pitch you cannot think much about this otherwise you are not concentrating [on your job]. We did all that we could do, our captain reports it to the referee that we had a manifestation of racism and the referee decides what to do.

“I hope we see more action from the federations, that’s what we want.”
