Liverpool Prospect Reveals The Disgusting Racist Abuse He Suffered This Year

Adjust Comment Print

England Under-17 and Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster claims he has been racially abused or witnessed abuse of a team-mate seven times, including one alleged incident in the Under-17 World Cup final.

Rhian Brewster is a 17-year-old Liverpool player, who was part of the England squad which won the 2017 Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup and the striker won the Golden Boot award for ending as the tournament's top scorer.

It's not a situation you want a 17-year-old boy to be in'. After another Liverpool player, Bobby Adekanye, was abused in Moscow the Russian were ordered to close a section of their Academy stadium - just 500 seats - and display an anti-racism banner.

In the interview, Brewster called on Uefa and Fifa to take a firmer stance over racism in football, saying there needs to be "more severe punishments". Their player leaned over me, right down to my face and said: 'Suck my d***, you n*****, you negro'.

Dress warm: Rainy 'wintry mix' could kick off the new year
The chance of rain or sleet after daybreak Wednesday is 30 percent, and the highs tomorrow are expected to be in the mid 40s. Tonight, the low will be 15 with mostly cloudy skies, according to the weather service, and a light and variable wind.

"I said: 'Come on, then - let's go and report it.' He started doing something else and I said: 'No, now.' We went over to the fourth official and told him". That is how it feels anyway, like it has been brushed under the carpet. The next day I'll still be thinking about it.Under UEFA's rules any player found guilty of making racial slurs can be suspended for a minimum of 10 matches.

"I am really happy he is fearless enough, and he needed to be courageous, to do what he did because it is such an important thing", Klopp told The Guardian.

"It's quite interesting because I'm long in this business and I've never faced a situation like that".

"Steven grabbed me and said: 'What's happened?' Obviously he realised something was wrong and he put his arm round me". It is such an important thing. "I really can't believe people still have these thoughts in their mind now". We needed a 17-year-old boy to shout out, "here, it's still happening and it's happening all the time - I need help, we need help to stop it". "He said to me he couldn't do anything because he hadn't heard it and what had happened and we made a complaint there".
