Callum Robinson racially abused on social media following West Brom’s win over Chelsea

Callum Robinson racially abused on social media following West Brom’s win over Chelsea

West Brom hammer Chelsea

The Premier League returned to our screens on Saturday afternoon.

Kicking off the action was a clash between relegation-battling West Brom and a Chelsea side in the midst of a 14-game unbeaten run under Thomas Tuchel.

So, the latter were of course viewed as heavy favourites ahead of kick-off at the Bridge.

However, when all was said and done, it was the Baggies who came away with a staggering 5-2 victory.

Chelsea opened the scoring 27 minutes in, through Christian Pulisic.

However, just two minutes later, Thiago Silva was shown a second yellow card, before the Londoners went on to suffer a rather spectacular collapse.

Callum Robinson racially abused

Mbaye Diagne, Matheus Pereira (2) and Callum Robinson (2) were all on the scoresheet.

Unfortunately, though, following their huge win, one West Brom player was subjected to racist abuse online.

The club released a statement, confirming that Callum Robinson was subjected to abuse on social media post-Chelsea.

The Baggies added that police have been informed, with the club having offered help and support to the forward, should he require it:

West Bromwich Albion has contacted West Midlands Police to report racist social media posts directed at Callum Robinson following Saturday’s 5-2 win over Chelsea. The despicable Instagram posts were sent in reply to the Republic of Ireland international after he scored twice in a memorable team performance at Stamford Bridge.

The club is appalled by the messages and will offer Callum the help and support he may require in response to the incident. Albion will continue to confront all forms of discrimination and will assist the authorities with their inquiries, seeking the toughest available legal punishment.

It is deeply disturbing that scoring two goals in a football match can provoke a reaction of this kind. There is No Room For Racism. Anywhere. Challenge it, report it, change it.
