Memphis Depay hits out at fans after racist abuse!

Dutch footballer Memphis Depay has hit out at racist fans after yet another foul incident caused a football game to be stopped on Sunday.

Memphis Depay has hit out at fans after yet another incident of racism occurred in a game in Holland, causing the game to be stopped on Sunday.

The match was between FC Den Bosch and Excelsior, and striker Ahmad Mendes Moreira felt he was receiving racist abuse from supporters of the home side. 

The referee was quick to halt the match as his team-mates rushed to comfort him. 

"I'm sick and tired to see these images over and over!" an angry Depay said on his Twitter account. "When is it going to stop!!?"

He also lashed out at the Dutch Football association and UEFA, asking them what they were going to do about the racist abuse received.

A number of racist incidents have hit the headlines this year, with calls for national football associations and UEFA to clamp down on it with more effectiveness. 

The game was stopped after 28 minutes, due to the referee receiving the complaints, and the teams left the field for a short time. 

Moreira managed to come back from this though, as he managed to score a goal in the 44th minute and shock some of the supporters.

He celebrated in front of the fans, cupping his hands to his ears before being congratulated by the rest of his team. He also held a finger up to his lips in an act of defiance. 

The match eventually ended 3-3.  FC Den Bosch issued a statement shortly after the match: "Let one thing be clear; FC Den Bosch distances itself from everything that has to do with this and acts strongly against stadium visitors who are guilty of this".
