Fans support Rose after he admits he ‘can’t wait’ to turn his back on football

Danny Rose has admitted he cannot wait to retire from football because of the racism he has encountered and the lack of punishment from those within a position of power.

Danny Rose has said that the racism he has encountered within football has meant he ‘can’t wait’ to retire from the game, as per the Independent.

The latest incident came during England’s 5-1 win against Montenegro last month and Rose said that he has grown so frustrated with the lack of punishments handed down that he feels nothing will change any time soon.

He said: “I’ve had enough. I just think: ‘I’ve got five or six more years left in football and I just can’t wait to see the back of it.’ I just want to get out of it.

“When countries only get fined what I’d probably spend on a night out in London what do you expect? When the punishment is not as harsh what do you expect? Until there’s a harsh punishment there’s not must else we can expect.”

And the issue united fans on Twitter, many of whom expressed their clear support for Rose’s point and regret that a player should have to experience such prejudice and racism at all – let alone to the extent that it has left them counting down the years until their retirement.

That common sense is well-needed because there were many other responses of ignorance and dismissal, saying that Rose should be able to put up with whatever is thrown at them because he’s paid so much money or that if the abuse was that bad, he’d have retired already.

Rose is right, there’s a huge long way to go in the fight against racism, but we’ve put together some of the messages of support…
