Danny Rose has said that racism should be eradicated from the game.
“Obviously it’s been great,” he said. “Despite what people think, I feel a bit uncomfortable with the headlines. It is an unfortunate thing that’s happening now in football,” said Rose. “We saw it at the weekend in the Championship, and it looks like it’s something that’s creeping back in.”
“I had some great support throughout the week, and I hope that once the season’s finished people can sit down and discuss how to eradicate these unfortunate things that are happening now in football. It’s a shame, really. But I’ve had some great support and would like to thank everyone who’s shown me that support.”
Rose recently said that he might have to quit the game following the racism chants he received from the away section of the fans while he was on national duty for the Three Lions.
“I have had enough,” he said. “At the minute, how I’ve programmed myself now, I just think that I’ve got five or six more years left in football and I just can’t wait to see the back of it, seeing how things are done in the game at the minute.
