Internal investigation conducted after footage emerged of trio using racist language and behaving inappropriately.
“Show Racism the Red Card are encouraged that this incident has been treated seriously and that a full enquiry has been conducted to determine the punishment required.”
“Leicester City have acted quickly and responsibly and set a benchmark for how to respond to incidents of racist and misogynistic behaviour involving representatives of the club and we hope that other football clubs and organisations take note of how seriously Leicester City have responded."
“The use of language which homogenises and degrades those of South East Asian heritage is unacceptable in any context”.
“The behaviour in the footage cannot be justified and it is therefore understandable that these young men have lost their jobs as a result of their actions. Show Racism the Red Card hope that they are given the opportunity to take responsibility for their actions and can be educated about why such behaviour is so inappropriate.”
