Leroy Sane and Ilkay Gundogan racially abused on international duty


Manchester City duo Leroy Sane and Ilkay Gundogan were the subjects of racial abuse while on international duty with Germany.

The incident took place during their 1-1 friendly draw with Serbia on Wednesday. Three men have since turned themselves into authorities for making the alleged comments.

It is alleged that they used the word “negro” towards Sane and a series of Turkish slurs were aimed at Gundogan.

A journalist at the game on Wednesday reported the incident on social media and posted details of the allegations.

After the incident the German national team released a statement on their website. It read:

“The DFB condemns the racist incident in the international match against Serbia on Wednesday in Wolfsburg in the strongest terms. During the match at the Volkswagen Arena, national team players Leroy Sané and Ilkay Gündogan were constantly insulted by a small group of spectators.

“Thanks to the support of a fan, the DFB was able to locate the ticket buyer for the seats where the spectators were sitting. The police have been turned on and are now investigating.”

It has been reported in Germany that the three men have admitted guilt to police.
