Millwall ban young fan for verbal abuse
Millwall have banned a 13-year-old fan for “the foreseeable future” after he admitted verbally abusing Bolton’s Marvin Sordell during a Championship match last month.
The incident occurred during Millwall’s 2-1 win over Wanderers at the New Den on October 6th and led to an investigation involving both clubs and the English FA.
Millwall confirmed the teenager had admitted abusing Sordell and has subsequently issued a written apology to the player.
Given the boy’s age, Millwall have not imposed a life ban on the youngster and offered him a place on a “Millwall for All” educational program “in the hope that we can change his outlook on equality, racism and life in general”.
