Racist Abuse Will Unite Liverpool Players, Says Brendan Rodgers: The Daily EPL

brendan rodgers Racist Abuse Will Unite Liverpool Players, Says Brendan Rodgers: The Daily EPL

Liverpool Football Club and manager Brendan Rodgers are fully prepared today to face any racist abuse their players may be subjected to in the Europa League match against Zenit St Petersburg in Russia.

“You go into the sporting arena and hopefully everyone from football, Uefa, referees and officials will support any player it may affect,” said Rodgers.

According to The Independent newspaper, Zenit have a long history of racist incidents. They were fined in 2008 after fans threw bananas and made monkey chants during a game with Marseilles and again in 2011 when former Brazil international Roberto Carlos was offered a banana.

    This should not have to be necessary: “Liverpool Football Club and manager Brendan Rodgers are fully prepared today to face any racist abuse”

    This should be happening:
    Zenit and the Russian league should be telling their racist supporters how Zenit will be banned from Europe for a decade should there be a racist chant or gesture.

    LOL at Liverpool to unite over racism.

  3. Harry Cee says:

    There is a Luis Suarez joke in there somewhere sadly but yeah, a team shouldn’t have to ‘prepare’ themselves for something the local government should be handling.
