Chelsea's Lukaku has full support of West Brom in racism probe

West Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke is confident that justice will be done regarding the racism claims against Romelu Lukaku.

A Sunderland fan was seen making a monkey gesture towards the Chelsea loanee after he slotted a penalty in the Baggies' 4-2 win at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.

Northumbria Police are now looking into the matter and Clarke says Albion are giving Belgian youngster Lukaku all their support.

"There should be no place in the game, or in any walk of life, for some of the things that have transpired within stadiums over the weekend," said Clarke.

"The authorities are now looking into the incident at Sunderland and Romelu has our full support.

"I am sure the authorities will conduct a thorough inquiry and take the appropriate action."
