Anthony Elanga was racially abused while on international duty.
Manchester United youngster Anthony Elanga was racially abused while on international with Sweden.
The Swedish FA says Elanga reported the incident after the Under-21s clash against Italy – a European Under-21 Championship qualifier that ended 1-1.
Elanga stated that a racist comment was made towards him from one of the players of the Italy team.
“We have told our version of what happened and have submitted an oral report to both the referees and the match delegates,” Sweden Under-21 manager Claes Eriksson said.
“We are now waiting for feedback through the match report and the referee report. Once they have arrived, we decide how to proceed. Safety manager Martin Fredman is also informed of what has happened.
“No one should have to be exposed to racism, it is completely unacceptable. We all stand behind and support Anthony in this.”
