Bolton’s Sordell Reveals Racist Abuse

Bolton striker Marvin Sordell took to Twitter to report that he was racially abused, along with numerous team mates, at Millwall on Saturday, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Sordell also said that the Police would have heard everything but decided to do nothing about it as the two clubs and the FA are set to investigate the claims.

“It’s 2012 in England and people are still shouting racial abuse at a football game!?” Sordell said on Twitter.

“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 had come on and scored and gave them some back, I would be the one who got fined.”

Millwall released a statement last night declaring that they would be looking into the claims as a matter of priority.

“Millwall and Bolton Wanderers are investigating allegations made by Bolton player Marvin Sordell that he was subjected to racial abuse by an individual whilst warming up as a substitute during Saturday’s Championship clash at The Den.

“The two clubs remain determined to do everything in their power to ensure that racist behaviour will not be tolerated.”
