Spartak Moscow condemned by anti-racism groups after offensive tweet”

Spartak Moscow are at the centre of a racism storm after captioning a video of three black players training with the words "see how the chocolates melt in the sun".

Anti-discriminatory body Kick It Out added: "This social media post from the official account of Spartak Moscow only continues to highlight the prejudices towards black people in Russian Federation".

Many Twitter users have condemned the tweet, with some urging Federation Internationale de Football Association and UEFA to take action.

They are also now being investigated by UEFA over allegations that Reds youngster Rhian Brewster was racially abused during a UEFA Youth League match at the Spartak Academy in Moscow back in December.

There are reports that Spartak's Twitter account was actually being controlled by defender Georgi Dzhikiya at the time the tweet in question was posted.

After the initial game between the sides in Moscow this season, Liverpool made a complaint after Brewster's team-mate Bobby Adekanye was racially abused by fans.

Russia, billed to host the FIFA World Cup in June has a long history of racial prejudices and intolerance.

Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino insisted racism will not be tolerated during the tournament and said World Cup referees had been given the power to abandon matches should they deem it necessary.

The Russian outfit were undergoing a warm-weather training camp in the United Arab Emirates, and uploaded the video to their official Twitter account showing squad members Luiz Adriano, Pedro Rocha and Fernando performing their warm-ups in the searing heat.
