15 Apr 2019, 19:55

English League Two club Milton Keynes Dons has frowned at incident of racial abuse of Nigerian midfielder Chucks Aneke.

Dons were defeated 2-1 by Tranmere on Saturday, and the next day, the abuse was allegedly uploaded by a Rovers supporter on Instagram.

A statement from MK Dons said: "MK Dons is aware of a racist social media post, made on Sunday 14 April, which was directed at one of our players, Chuks Aneke.

"Needless to say, the club is appalled at the nature of this totally disgusting and unacceptable post. The individual responsible must be held to account and we will play our part in working towards that outcome.

"Like many in the game, MK Dons are distressed by the increasing number of racism incidents which are sadly, and once again, tarnishing football.

"As well as providing Chuks with whatever support he needs, we will continue to work with our players, our supporters, and all those in football, as well as others in society, so that together we can eradicate all forms of discrimination from our game."

The creative midfielder joined Arsenal aged seven in 2001 and progressed through the youth ranks to become a regular for the Under 21s.
