Leicester City condemn online abuse of Hamza Choudhury in wake of tackle that injured Mohamed Salah

Mohamed Salah injured his ankle on Saturday against Leicester after a dangerous tackle by Hamza Choudhury. The latter had already injured a Newcastle player a few days ago...

Report from Leicester City to English Police for Mohamed Salah

The management of English club Leicester City has lodged a formal complaint with the local police for what it described as racist insults against first-team footballer Hamza Choudhury.

Leicester City were sent off in a 2-1 defeat at Liverpool Square, at the top of the eighth round of the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Klopp in all his states because of a tackle on Mohamed Salah

Jürgen Klopp was furious on Saturday afternoon, after the game won (2-1) by Liverpool against Leicester. The victory in the final moments won thanks to a penalty from James Milner should have given the German manager a smile. But the satisfaction of provisionally taking 8 points ahead of Manchester City quickly gave way to cold anger. Klopp had only the injury of Mohamed Salah in mind when answering questions from Sky Sports. A few minutes earlier, the Egyptian was the victim of a dangerous tackle from the midfielder Foxes Hamza Choudhury, forcing him to leave the field.

Despite the three points taken and the first place confirmed, the German was furious at the end of the match. On the mike of Sky Sports, Klopp does not understand that the author of the tackle only came out with a yellow one. I cannot get over it. Choudhury should know this. Maybe on Matt Ritchie he had been unlucky, but he must absolutely calm down. You can’t just aim at the guy and get away with a yellow one. I don’t see how that can work. A priori, Mohamed Salah is not seriously affected and should be laid off, especially since he is not called with Egypt for the international truce.
While Mohamed Salah is apparently not seriously affected, some Reds fans unfortunately took responsibility for bringing him to justice. Or at least what they consider justice... Choudhury, whose parents are of Bengali origin, saw a flood of racist messages crashing down on him on social networks, instructing him to "return to Pakistan or Bangladesh", or calling him "Asian Negro" and other pleasantries. The FA will certainly soon be looking at both files to study Choudhury’s behaviour in the field, as well as the cyber-harassment he is subject to.
