World Cup 2018: England’s Danny Rose ‘numb’ to racial abuse

Latest news

    England defender Danny Rose says he is “numb” to racial abuse and has “no faith” in football’s authorities to challenge it.

    The Tottenham left-back, 27, has told his family not to travel to the World Cup in Russia over fears of abuse.

    The Russian Football Union was recently fined £22,000 for racist chants by fans in a friendly against France in March.

    “If I’m racially abused out there, nothing is going to change,” Rose told the Evening Standard.

    “It shouldn’t be like that but it is.”

    Rose said he was racially abused and hit with stones during an England Under-21 game in Serbia in October 2012.

    He added: “I’m not worried for myself, but I’ve told my family I don’t want them going out there because of racism and anything else that may ­happen.

    “My dad’s really upset. I could hear it in his voice. He said he may never get a chance again to come and watch me in a World Cup.”
