Tottenham defender Danny Rose expresses displeasure over racism

Agency News

Expressing his displeasure over racism in football, Tottenham defender Danny Rose said that he "couldn’t wait to see the back of football" and was frustrated at the lack of action taken against fans' racism.

The player was racially abused while featuring for England in Montenegro, prompting Rose to criticise the punishments handed out by governing bodies, "When countries get fined what I probably spend on a night out in London what do you expect?"

Rose added: "How I programme myself is that I 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, you just have to get on with it. There is so much politics in football. I can't wait to see the back of it."

His racist chanting was directed at several England players, including Rose, during the Euro 2020 qualifier in Montenegro. Uefa has charged Montenegro with racist behaviour but Rose, 28, does not expect a significant punishment.

The left-back said: "When countries get fined what I probably spend on a night out in London what do you expect?"Rose, who was also abused while on England Under-21 duty in Serbia in 2012, says he will play on but has "had enough" of racism in the game.

"There is so much politics in football. I can't wait to see the back of it."The Montenegro disciplinary case will be dealt with by European football's governing body on 16 May.
