Young player alleges racial abuse on pitch

‘Brave’ Brewster will get help from Liverpool – Klopp

England and Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster says he has experienced racial abuse on the pitch since he was 12.

The 17-year-old striker says he has been targeted five times and that there were two other incidents aimed at his team-mates.

Brewster, who helped England lift the Under-17 World Cup, criticised football’s authorities, saying there needs to be “more severe punishments”.

“It’s just disappointing it’s still in the game,” Brewster told the Guardian.
