  • Hull City Provide Police Update As Online Racist Abuse Is Aimed At Manager Liam Rosenior

Hull City provide police update as online racist abuse is aimed at manager Liam Rosenior

Hull have confirmed the racist abuse aimed at their head coach Liam Rosenior has been reported to Humberside Police.

Rosenior was targeted on social media after it was announced on Wednesday that he had been shortlisted for the Championship manager of the year award.

“Hull City strongly condemns the racist abuse aimed at head coach Liam Rosenior,” a statement read.

“We are disgusted by the social media posts and the matter has been reported to Humberside Police.

“We will continue to work with the relevant authorities to identify those responsible.

“Hull City has zero tolerance of any form of discrimination and our stance is clear: racism has no place in football or society.”

Speaking to BBC Humberside Sport earlier on Thursday afternoon, Rosenior condemned the abuse he had faced as unacceptable.

“People want to talk about the job I do – whether I should do better, whether I should be in a job, out of a job – then no problem at all,” the 39-year-old said.

“But when people are writing things about I’ve been nominated for manager of the year because it’s a token gesture and things like monkey are being written, I think I have to say something in public.

“That’s just not acceptable for anyone to put on social media or for anyone to even think.”
