  • What They're Saying

    "All of us are deeply sorry for what happened on Friday night and our players and our club pass on our sincere regrets to Tom Adeyemi for the upset and distress he suffered."

    -- A statement from Liverpool FC after Oldham's Tom Adeyemi was racially abused by Liverpool fans, one of whom was arrested, during Friday's FA Cup third-round game, which Liverpool won 5-1. A tearful Adeyemi was consoled by Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard after the incident. The incident came in the wake of Liverpool striker Luis Suarez being banned for eight games and fined $62,000 for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra. Compounding Liverpool's image problems was the questioning by police of midfielder Stewart Downing on suspicion of assault following a night out. (Reuters)
