A lot has been said about racism in football of late, particularly sparked by the events in Montenegro last month.

England faced an away trip to the country in question for a EURO 2020 qualifier in March, and romped to victory in some style, but the headlines were not about the performance.

Instead, the back pages spoke of racist abuse hurled at Danny Rose, Raheem Sterling, and Callum Hudson-Odoi throughout the night.

Since then, these three Premier League stars have all spoken out about racism in football, but the abuse doesn’t just come from abroad.

You only have to look over the past week to see Troy Deeney, the Watford captain, who blocked comments on his Instagram posts due to vile racist replies.

Tottenham’s Heung Min Son has also spoken out on the racist abuse he has endured since his move to England, but believes the best action is to ignore it.
