Jadon Sancho anxieties players can quit football if racism from the sport does not stop.
Romelu Lukaku was subjected to monkey chants in the latest episode this term during Inter’s match at Cagliari, together with Marcus Rashford along with Tammy Abraham and Manchester United duo Paul Pogba and Chelsea pair Kurt Zouma encountering misuse earlier in the season.
Since linking Borussia Dortmund in 2017, sancho, that has been a revelation in Germany, is concerned top players could be pushed from the match if the racism continues.
“I think it just has to stop,” the 19-year-old England winger mentioned.
“No player wants to play soccer and having misuse like that. It sets down the assurance and that I feel the love of this game will go.
“Everybody ought to be happy and just do what they’re doing [with] no racist abuse.
“I really don’t think it’s social networking [that is the main problem].
“I think some fans are very passionate, they just say what they want to convey but they just have to slow it down a bit. We’re still only human. We are not exactly what people believe. We’re famous but we love the sport and need to play football.
“It’s difficult when I find things in this way because it feels like,’why should we play football’?” I feel just like Romelu Lukaku managed it [the situation in Cagliari] well by not responding and just taking on playing.”
