Jadon Sancho on racism in football

Jadon Sancho

England and Borussia Dortmund player Jordan Sancho fears racism will cause players to fall out of love with football.

Recent incidents of racism in the game, including abuse directed at Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Tammy Abraham on social media and at Romelu Lukaku during a game at Cagliari last weekend, are making the Sancho question why he plays the game.

"It just has to stop," England and Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho said.

"No player wants to play football and have abuse like that. It puts the confidence down in players and the love of the sport will go very soon if it doesn't stop.

"It is hard to see things like this because it feels like, 'why should we play football?'"
