‘Racist abuse’ aimed at England star Danny Rose in win over Montenegro | UK News
England manager Gareth Southgate says he heard racist abuse directed at defender Danny Rose during the team’s 5-1 win over Montenegro.
Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling reacted to the chants directed at his England teammate by making a gesture with his ears towards the Montenegro fans after he scored.
Monkey chants were aimed at Rose towards the end of the game after a late challenge.
Southgate told ITV Football: “I definitely heard abuse at Danny Rose when he got booked at the end of the game, there’s no doubt in my mind that happened and we’ll make sure that that’s reported officially – it’s not acceptable.”
When asked if Sterling was racially abused too, the England manager replied: “I’m not sure yet, I had a quick chat with Danny because I heard what had happened there. I’ve not had a chance to speak with Raheem yet but whatever has happened we will report.”
