Jude Bellingham has received support from the Football Association after the England teen star was subjected to racial online abuse.
Bellingham, 17, shared a screenshot of a vile Instagram message following Borussia Dortmund’s 2-2 draw against Cologne in the Bundesliga on Saturday.
The Three Lions starlet posted: “Just another day on social media…” in reply to the abusive message towards his mother which led to a racist post including monkey emojis.
England tweeted: “We continue to be disgusted by the discriminatory abuse our players – and others across the game – are being subjected to online. Something needs to change. We stand with you, @BellinghamJude”
Bellingham was included in Gareth Southgate’s squad for the World Cup qualifying triple-header against San Marino, Albania and Poland.
But the Covid-19 regulations in Germany are expected to prevent the Dortmund midfielder from linking up with the Three Lions.
