Liverpool's Rhian Brewster calls for action after suffering racist abuse

Liverpool ace Rhian Brewster claimed he has been racially abused or witnessed abuse

But the 17-year-old suffered racist abuse in a UEFA Youth League game against Spartak Moscow at the beginning of December.

The 17-year-old Brewster is one of the brightest talents to come through at Anfield in recent years and starred for England Under-17s as they became world champions in the summer.

"After the game he tried to apologise but I wouldn't shake his hand". "I got fouled", he said.

The striker - just 17 - recalled at least seven incidents of racist abuse during his career, five of them in the a year ago, including one targeted at Wolves starlet Gibbs-White, who used to attend Thomas Telford school. Their player leaned over me, right down to my face and said, 'Suck my d***, you n*****, you n*****'.

"In Rhian's case, we have visited him at his club to discuss his concerns and understand his frustration at the perceived lack of action", read the statement.




"Something happened in the box".

In the interview, Brewster called on Uefa and Fifa to take a firmer stance over racism in football, saying there needs to be "more severe punishments".

"He [the referee] said to me he couldn't do anything because he hadn't heard it and "the only thing I can do is report it". As Morgan was running away, he [a Spain player] has called him a monkey. "It was a goal-kick and I was getting into position". They don't really care.

Just recently, Raheem Sterling was racially abused prior to a Premier League match for Manchester City and GardaĆ­ confirmed they are investigating racist abuse directed at Cyrus Christie.

Brewster said he had initially had the feeling that he did not want to make a complaint because he feared that "nothing's going to happen". "It is time for the relevant authorities to act on this unacceptable behaviour", the organisation said on its official Twitter feed. UEFA's disciplinary regulations stipulate that any player found guilty of racist abuse should be banned for a minimum of 10 matches.
