Lampard Sends Furious Message To Chelsea Fans Who Racially Abuse Tammy Abraham After His Penalty Miss
Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham was racially abused on social media after Chelsea’s Super Cup loss to Liverpool on Wednesday.
After a hard fought 2-2 draw between Chelsea and Liverpool, Abraham was the only one who missed his spot kick, and Liverpool were eventually crowned Super Cup champions.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed that he’s disappointed with the abuse targeted at Abraham on social media and wants something to be done about it.
Speaking in his press conference ahead of Sunday’s clash with leicester city, Lampard said: “I am disgusted by the so-called Chelsea fans.
“I saw the different ends of the spectrum that evening: Tammy asked me to take the fifth penalty because he wanted to stand up and be brave when the world is watching, and afterwards somebody sitting behind a keyboard or a phone has said the most disgusting things possible.
“I don’t like how these platforms allow it. It’s too easy. Something needs to be done, as well as people changing their mindsets completely.
“I’m so angry for Tammy, and angry for us as a club because that’s not what we are about. The club does a lot of work against discrimination of all levels. It’s a step back when these things happen.”
