Osei-Tutu thanks Arsenal & Bochum after being racially abused

Jordi Osei-Tutu has thanked Arsenal and Vfl Bochum for their support after he was racially abused in a friendly on Wednesday.

The young defender, on loan with Bochum from the Gunners, was visibly upset after an altercation with St. Gallen player. It was confirmed that the 20-year-old was racially abused.

"I am very disappointed that I was racially abused last night," he said.

"Nobody should ever be discriminated against and it is really hard to understand how a fellow professional footballer can behave disrespectfully in this way.

"Arsenal and VfL Bochum have given me great support and I hope that we can finally demonstrate that racism has no place in football".
