Dortmund star Jadon Sancho has offered his support to Romelu Lukaku, who was racially abused in Inter’s game against Cagliari. 

The winger has called for a stop to the racial abuse suffered by players, saying they [players] could start to fall out of love with football if such instances continue to occur.

It wasn’t the first case of racial abuse at the club. With Cagliari now practically noted for the ill behavior for sometime now.

Jadon Sancho praised Romelu Lukaku for his rather cool response to the occasion. But exercised fears, over the long-term  effects and consequences of racial abuse in football.

“I personally think that it just has to stop,” Jadon 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.

“Everyone should be happy and do what they are doing without receiving racial abuse. I don’t think it is [just] social media.

“Some fans are just really passionate and obviously they say what they want to say. I feel they need to slow it down a bit – we’re still only human.

“Just because we play football people might think we are just famous and ignorant to that but we just love the sport and just want to play.

“It is hard to see things like this because it feels like ‘why should we play football?’. I felt that Romelu Lukaku handled it really well by not reacting and carrying on playing.”

After the game, Romelu Lukaku shared his opinion on the matter. As well as, issued a call for footballers to unify against racism and for social media companies to do more to combat discrimination. After Paul Pogba, Tammy Abraham and Kurt Zouma all suffered similar cases in several online communities.
