Manchester United Football club of England has warned its supporters against indulging in racial chants.
This warning was issued after a video footage of fans chanting racial chant about United striker, Romelu Lukaku, emerged following Sunday’s 4-0 win over Everton.
Numerous United supporters’ groups and websites have called for the song to be consigned to history, and United on Wednesday issued a statement via their official Twitter account.
“We remind fans of our commitment to ensuring Old Trafford remains inclusive for all. Action will be taken against any offensive behaviour,” the statement reads.
Anti-discrimination group ‘Kick It Out’ had also urged United and the Football Association (FA) to address the issue and encouraged punishments to be given to those engaging in such chants.
