Bolton Wanderers and England Under-21 striker Marvin Sordell claims he was racially abused at Millwall
7:48pm Saturday 6th October 2012 in Sport
Former Watford striker Marvin Sordell claims he was racially abused at Millwall this afternoon.
Hornets Academy graduate Sordell was an unused substitute as Bolton Wanderers lost 2-1 at The Den and the England Under-21 striker claims he was racially abused – using the term ‘slave ****’ as an example of what was said.
Sordell also claims unacceptable comments were made to Bolton team-mates Lee Chung-Yong, Darren Pratley and Benik Afobe.
Using social networking site Twitter, Sordell said: “Putting the match aside, it’s 2012 in England and people are still shouting racial abuse at a football game? #Shocking
“Chungy, Pratts, Benik and I had all sorts of things said to us. The police were standing yards away and did nothing
“Funniest thing is if I had come on and scored and gave them some back, I would be the one who got fined. #kickitout? Yeah I’m sure.”
