FA tells Manchester United to act on Romelu Lukaku song

FA tells Manchester United to act on Romelu Lukaku song”

"If Romelu lukaku comes out and says he doesn't like it then we all as Manchester United fans should do as he asks and stop singing the chant, but until then keep singing this chant about a hypothetical body part and have fun singing it".

Fan footage emerged after Sunday's 4-0 win over Everton that showed small groups of United fans singing about the Belgium global, with the song judged to contain racial stereotypes.

United have promised to meet Kick It Out, Greater Manchester police and supporters' groups to discuss the chant.

The FA is understood to have contacted United to ask what measures they are taking to deal with the chant that mentions the size of the striker's penis amid fears that it could be construed as racist or offensive. "Racist stereotypes are never acceptable, irrespective of any intention to show support for a player", said Kick It Out.

United have since said that they are "seeking advice" on how to handle the situation but the "MUFC Songs and Chants" supporter group have said that the song will continue for the time being as it is "not a negative chant". "We have a zero-tolerance (approach) towards discrimination".

United begin their defence of the cup against Championship outfit Burton tonight at Old Trafford, and ahead of the game the Red Devils released a tweet urging fans to be on their best behaviour.

"We remind fans of our commitment to ensuring Old Trafford remains inclusive for all. Action will be taken against any offensive behaviour".
