The FA has opened an investigation to find out the alleged racial abuse that Tottenham Ladies player Renee Hector had to face from an opposition player of Sheffield United.

A FA spokesperson posted on his Twitter account about the incident and the consequent investigation. The statement read, “The FA can confirm that we are aware of an allegation of discriminatory abuse during The FA Women’s Championship match between Sheffield United Women and Tottenham Hotspur Ladies on Sunday 6 January. We take all allegations of discrimination very seriously and will be making enquiries into the matter.”
Hector herself posted regarding the matter on Twitter from her official account. It read, “Such a shame that racism seems to be rising up again in football – I received some monkey noises (on Sunday) from an opposition player. The only reaction was to let the football do the talking and that we did great start to the year!”
