Abraham Vows To Keep Taking Penalties Despite Being Targeted By Vile Racist Abuse

Abraham Vows To Keep Taking Penalties Despite  Being Targeted By Vile Racist Abuse

Tammy Abraham has vowed to keep taking penalties for Chelsea – despite being targeted by vile racist abuse after his miss against Liverpool .

The striker’s saved effort handed the Super Cup to the Reds and gave trolls an excuse to bombard him with offensive tweets on social media.

One tweet directed at Abraham read: “Tammy Abraham f*** off back to the jungle you silly cotton picking dirt n***er.”

And another read: “F****** n*****”, alongside a video of the Ku Klux Klan lynching.

Anti-racism watchdog Kick It Out condemned the messages and said in a statement: “Such abuse is now increasingly predictable, but no less disgusting.

We send our support to Tammy and reiterate our call for Twitter and other social media companies to clamp down on this level of abuse.

“This is a call to action – we want to know what they are going to do to tackle this insidious problem.”

Abraham was upset to have missed the decisive spot-kick but claimed it wouldn’t stop him from stepping up again.

He said: “I’ve scored a few. Unfortunately I missed one of the most important ones for Chelsea.

“They say the top players always miss penalties and it’s about how you react. I’ve just got to keep pushing myself.

“I’m always someone who believes in myself in penalties. I had a few last season and a few important ones. Unfortunately this was probably one of my most important ones I missed.

“It’s about how I react and just get my head up. The boys have made it feel like nothing has even happened. It’s a great bunch of boys now we’ve just got to focus on the game against Leicester .”

    You played well Tammy. Those racists idiot are d already outcast of d society. They re crying babies who’ s got no value to d same society your great talent is, has n will continuously take from them. They are only good at smoking their life out,drink to stupor n gambling away fortunes their very hard working great grandparents left for them. Be strong, think more about d far far greater percentage of fans back in Nigeria n over here that love you n appreciate your talent. Bother not about the infinitesimal number of racists idiots who it’s so laughable when they dance to d foolery of being called white supremacist aka Ku Klux Klan. The name we who know better give to dirty swine. My only worry is hoping you know what you re doing choosing to play for England rather than Nigeria. What ever your choice,you are one of us.

      There is no place for racism in the game. FIFA should step up efforts to root out this vile evil from our midst. But to root out this evil, FIFA have to start the cleanup from within!

    You came in and help saved a goal in the dying minutes, they did not see it, you got them the penalty to equalise during extra time, they were still blind to it. Keep the flag flying, loved the way you are improving.

    This is just a tip of an ice berg, the beginning of what u will face if u choose to play for england over nigeria….

    Just be happy that u were not in english colors… If it was a nation league final or euro final and u miss the decisive penalty by now english fans would hav rosted u….

    U try shar…. Though u are just equal to LUKAKU of 2013….

  • Mr Tammy Abraham u better think well oo,phil Collins said think twice,they are abusing you because of one mistake,while we saw sadio mane miss many at afcon but still receive praises frm Senegalese,u better find ur way home,

    • Mr. Nice 5 years ago

      so what’s the difference between what he faced and what Odion ighalo the highest goal scorer at the Afcon faced from naija’s fan, abeg they are all the same joor.

      • Glory 5 years ago

        The difference is no matter how good Tammy will prove to be, they will never appreciate him in d England national team. There will be constant attempt to ruin him. Remember Sterling? But yes Ighalo at some point didn’t perform even though I never critisized him n those that did were only being myopic n did for selfish reasons but once he started performing or anyone starts performing, nigerians will embrace / worship him or her. That’s is difference. The premitive white supremacist mentality will never make those idiots see anything good in a black person.

      • @Mr nice u re right but no place like home, English fan’s are very racist.we Nigerians insults nd support Same time.

    Tammy will learn the hard way. No matter how you try, the English white folks will never accept you. Black folks will never be a hero. Some ignorant people will make sure they remind you of your black Africans roots that are wallowing in object substance living in the far away jungle. Tammy should know that by now any way. Nigeria don’t need him now because we have Victor Osimhem.

    • Even Nigerian fans are not any nicer. One slight mistake and they are already calling for ur head. Theres no difference as far as am concerned
