Ryan Sessegnon, on loan at Hoffenheim from Tottenham, says he is disgusted by the racist abuse he has been subjected to online and has shared screenshots of the messages he received on social media.
Tottenham tweeted: “Everyone at the club is with you @RyanSessegnon. We are proud of the rich ethnic diversity that exists across our communities, fans, staff and players. We are driven by inclusion and equality for all and nobody should have to endure such repulsive abuse.”
Hoffenheim said on Twitter they stood for “tolerance, integration and respect”. The Bundesliga club added: “We reject any form of racism, discrimination and exclusion and say no to racism.”
