Unai Emery takes a tough stance on racism…


 

Unai Emery took a tough stance on racism in football while speaking to the press ahead of our trip to Everton on Sunday with the Spaniard agreeing with Spurs’ Danny Rose’s theory, Arsenal.com reports.

The full-back claimed that he couldn’t wait to retire from the game and called on players to walk off the pitch when being barraged with racist abuse.

Rose has experienced a few incidents of racism while on the pitch, with the latest episode coming in England’s recent European Championships qualifier in Montenegro.

The issue of racism in football has sparked once again following the episode at Cagliari in which Moise Kean was met with monkey chants for celebrating his winner in front of the home fans.

Instead of condemning those chants, Leonardo Bonucci and head coach Max Allegri initially reprimanded the youngster and stated that he should share the blame for upsetting the fans with his celebration.

Emery has thrown his wisdom into the dialogue and says he would support players walking off the pitch amid racist abuse.

“I am in agreement,” the former Sevilla boss said regarding Rose’s sentiments.

“I think we need to be together for the action we can take and taking responsibility, each team. I agree that we need to be together against racism and not let anything with racism in the stadiums.”

Away from his traits as a top coach, it’s rather warming that the club has found a man who respects and shares our values to represent the club.

Emery has been the definition of class since he walked through the door and his words regarding racism echo that.

Not to mention, this is the one occasion that we’re happy to be in agreement with a Spurs player!
