Jadon Sancho responds to online racial attacks by declaring that “hate will never win.”
After England’s Euro 2020 final loss to Italy on penalties, JADON SANCHO received racial online abuse.
“I’m not going to pretend that I didn’t notice the racial hatred that my brothers Marcus and Bukayo experienced after the game, but regrettably it’s nothing new,” the Borussia Dortmund winger wrote in an Instagram message to his 6.4 million followers.
“As a society, we need to do better, and hold these people accountable,” the 21-year-old added.
“Hate can never triumph.”
Sancho, who will join Manchester United for £73 million this summer, complimented Gareth Southgate’s team’s achievements.
“I am pleased of this England squad and how we have brought the entire country together in what has been a trying 18 months for so many people,” he said.
“It’s been an honor to serve England and wear the Three Lions shirt as always, and I’m confident we’ll come back even stronger.”
Sancho’s fans reacted positively to the message.
“Keep your chin up, you made the whole country proud,” one Instagram user replied.
“I will never apologise for who I am,” Marcus Rashford declared in reaction to social media criticism.
He described himself as “overwhelmed” by notes of encouragement left at a vandalized Manchester United forward mural.

Johnson was accused by the Leader of the Opposition of giving racism a “green light” and inciting a “cultural war” over Southgate’s squad’s choice to take a knee before their Euro 2020 matches.
On Tuesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with representatives from major social media firms, including Instagram and Twitter, to discuss ways to combat abuse on their platforms.
Johnson stated that he “made it quite clear to them” that “we would legislate to address this problem in the Online Harms Bill,” and that they might face fines of up to ten percent of their global earnings if hate and racism are not addressed. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
