Jadon Sancho release an emotional statement after racial abuse

Manchester United bound Jadon Sancho has released a statement on the racial abuse he was subjected to last week after he missed a penalty in England's Euro 2020 final loss to Italy.

Sancho was one of three players who were subjected to racial abuse with the other being Marcus Rashford and Arsenal's Bukayo Saka who have all received love from a section of their fans and the world of football.

With Rashford having released a statement of his own, Sancho followed by writing an incredibly powerful message of his own, which he published on his official Instagram page on Wednesday afternoon.

"I’ve had a couple of days to reflect on Sunday's final and still feel a mix of emotions. I would like to say sorry to all my teammates, coaching staff and most of all the fans who I let down.

"This is by far the worst feeling I’ve felt in a long time, it’s hard to even put into words the real feeling, but there were so many positives to take away from this tournament though the defeat will hurt for a long time.

"My first thought before going into any football match is always “How can I help my team?, how am I going to assist? how am I going to score? how am I going to create chances? And that’s exactly what I wanted to do with that penalty, help the team.," the statement noted.
