Tweet du jour: Antonio Rudiger

"It is really sad to see racism again at a football match, but I think it's very important to talk about it in public. If not, it will be forgotten again in a couple of days (as always). I don't want to involve Tottenham as an entire club into this situation as I know that just a couple of idiots were the offenders. I got a lot of supportive messages on social media from Spurs fans as well in the last hours -- thank you a lot for this. I really hope that the offenders will be found and punished soon, and in such a modern football ground like the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with dozens of TV and security cameras, it must be possible to find and subsequently punish them. If not, then there must have been witnesses in the stadium who saw and heard the incident. It's just such a shame that racism still exists in 2019. When will this nonsense stop?"

-- Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger after he was subjected to a stream of monkey chants in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Tottenham. The stadium announcer issued three warnings for the racism to stop in an unprecedented move for the Premier League. (@ToniRuediger)

    The FA better grow a pair and do something meaningful. In some countries the home club is censored if they cannot have enough security personnel to stop rowdy behavior. Like playing in an empty stadium. This will get everyone,s attention, you can be sure.
