“I’ll Walk Off The Pitch” - Ighalo On Racism

Manchester United striker Odion Jude Ighalo has vowed to walk off the pitch if he is racially abused after experiencing such in China.

This comes amidst protest of “Black Lives Matters” and the killing of 46 years George Floyd in the USA.

“If it happens to me I would report it to the referee and see what they do, but if they don’t take action about it then I’m going to walk off because it should not be done to any player or anyone in the world,” he told Sky Sports News.

“In one game in China I got called all sorts of names and after the game, I didn’t shake his hand. I walked straight into the dressing room, I was angry, I reported it to the FA.

“I didn’t press forward with it, I just let it go because I’m just this kind of guy. I don’t like to drag issues out. But I don’t think it should be condoned in any country.”
