Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha shares vile racist abuse ahead of Aston Villa game

On the horrific racist abuse Zaha received, Palace manager Roy Hodgson said: “I think it’s important [that players and football clubs continue to raise awareness of the abuse suffered].

“I think it is being highlighted very much anyway with the black lives matter movement, and everyone seems to be making such an effort to eradicate this type of behaviour.

“It is very saddening on the day of a game that a player wakes up to this cowardly and despicable abuse.

“I think it is right that Wilf made people aware of it; I don’t think it is something he should keep quiet about.
