Jadon Sancho fears if racism in the game doesn’t stop players can stop football.
Romelu Lukaku was exposed to monkey chants in the racist episode this term throughout Inter’s match at Cagliari, with Marcus Rashford and Tammy Abraham and Manchester United duo Paul Pogba along with Chelsea pair Kurt Zouma encountering online misuse earlier in this season.
Since joining Borussia Dortmund in 2017 sancho, who has been a revelation in Germany, is concerned players may be pushed from the game in the event the racism continues.
“I think it only has to stop,” that the 19-year-old England winger said.
“No player wishes to play football and having abuse like that. It sets the assurance down and I believe that the love of the sport will go soon if it doesn’t stop.
“Everybody should be happy and just do what they are doing [with] no undue abuse.
“I don’t think that it’s social networking [that is the major issue ].
“I think some fans are very passionate, they just state what they want to convey but they simply need to slow it down a bit. We are still only human. We’re not what people think. We might be renowned but we love the game and just wish to play football.
“It is difficult when I see things like this because it feels like,’why should we play soccer’?” I feel like Romelu Lukaku handled it [the position in Cagliari] very well by not responding and just carrying on playing”
