Depay calls for action after racist chants at Dutch game

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 387

Netherlands international Memphis Depay called upon UEFA to act after racist chants halted a Dutch second-division match on Sunday.

The incident occurred at a Dutch second-tier game between Excelsior Rotterdam and Den Bosch, with Excelsior winger Ahmad Mendes Moreira walking off the pitch after hearing racist chants from the stands. The referee stopped the match, but the teams returned to complete the game.

"I'm sick and tired to see these images over and over! When is it going to stop!!?," Depay wrote on Twitter. "@UEFA what we going to do? Specially with the upcoming @EURO2020."

The Dutch football association insisted that its protocol had been correctly applied. "We are still looking for the culprits," it said in a statement.

Depay missed out through injury as the Netherlands qualified for Euro 2020 on Saturday with a 0-0 draw against Northern Ireland in Belfast.
