“Racism In Football Is At An All-Time High” - Romelu Lukaku Laments

Inter Milan striker, Romelu Lukaku has revealed that racism in football is at an “all-time high” ahead of the start of the European Championships.

According to him, abuse towards black players is currently getting worse

Lukaku told CNN Sport.

 “I think racism in football right now is at the all-time high. Why? Because of social media now as well.

I understand why people like Thierry Henry are blocking social media because it’s easy, you can track somebody down … The social media companies, they have to do more for me.”

Note that Henry deleted his social media accounts following a spate of online racist abuse aimed at Black footballers.

Speaking further on Racism, Romelu Lukaku slammed social media companies for their inability to hold users accountable for their actions.

For me, to be honest, I don’t really see progress. I see a lot of campaigns and all that stuff, but really until there is no real action taken.

In Italy, when it happened to me directly, there was something that was done because the Serie A really communicated with me and my team.

And we basically tried to educate people in Italy that it is not good, because in Italy, it is a beautiful country and I’ve been accepted really well by everybody, home fans, away fans.

I think when that happened, it changed. That’s what all the leagues should do. They should talk to the players and basically try to start doing things with the players and with their teams.” Lukaku added.
