Four incidents of racism towards Bassong reported


Four separate incidents of actual or alleged racism towards Norwich defender Sebastien Bassong have been reported to the police, the club have confirmed.

The allegations relate to Norwich’s away matches against Everton on November 24th and the 4-3 win at Swansea on Saturday.

A Swansea supporter was released on bail on Sunday after being arrested during the game for allegedly making racist gestures towards Bassong as he celebrated a goal with his team-mates.

Norwich have confirmed the other three cases involved racist messages being sent to the defender on Twitter after both the Swansea and Everton games.

Norwich are currently on a 10-game unbeaten run and face Aston Villa at Carrow Road tonight in the quarter-final of the League Cup.
