Danny Rose Disappointed in Football Racism

It seems hard to believe that in this day and age we are still struggling with issues of racism; however just last weekend Danny Rose was subject to racial abuse on the pitch during an England v Montenegro Euro 2020 qualifier. Naturally, the left back is not impressed and has now stated that he cannot wait to leave the game forever, despite having 5 or 6 years left in his career. looks into the story that is now giving the great game a bad reputation as well as upsetting players.

Playing for both England and Tottenham, Rose has built a stellar reputation, and without a doubt he is contributory to their strong table placing this season. However, for some reason, he has been plagued by racial abuse at various points in his career. In 2012 playing with England Under-21s, monkey chants were heard as he came on the pitch and he was pelted with stone when collecting the ball for a throw-in. It seems ridiculous that in 2019 we are still struggling with racism in football and as Rose himself has said the reaction from the top has been less than supporting with flimsy punishments that do not actually tackle the problem.

Speaking to the press, he said “I’ve had enough. At the minute, how I programme myself is that I just think: ‘I’ve got five or six more years left in football and I just can’t wait to see the back of it.’ Seeing how things are done in the game at the minute … It’s just – whatever, isn’t it? I just want to get out of it. That’s how I feel. I feel I’ve got five or six more years left and I just want to enjoy football as much as I can. There is so much politics and whatever in football and I just can’t wait to see the back of it, to be honest.”

While acknowledging that sometimes there are slightly harsher punishments, for example, Serbia was fined £80000, an amount Rose feels is something that they could spend in a night out, and their next match was played behind closed doors with no fans present, he thinks that generally there is not enough stamping out of the behaviour. Recently his manager received a two-match ban after an altercation with a referee, which was nothing to do with racism, and he feels that this is taken more seriously than the awful racial taunts he has to put up with.

In the match against Montenegro, it was not just Rose that was abused but teammates Raheem Sterling and Callum Hudson-Odoi as well. UEFA have said that if they find Montenegro guilty, they will face a partial closure of their stadium which seems rather mild for a club that is not prepared to take responsibility for the behaviour of its fans. Perhaps more clubs should take a leaf out of Brighton’s book as they actively seek to ban fans that do not behave well at the game.
