Chelsea have offered counseling to teenaged winger Callum Hudson-Odoi afterwards he had been subjected to racist abuse twice in 11 days.
The club reported that the 18-year-old heard monkey chants throughout Chelsea’s Europa League win at Dynamo Kiev on 14 March, which Uefa is now investigating.
Hudson-Odoi was clearly one of many England players mistreated throughout the 5-1 win over Montenegro on Monday.
England boss Gareth Southgate has also been touching the ball player.
After the Montenegro win, that had been Hudson-Odoi’s full England debut, the winger clarified the misuse (also targeting Danny Rose and Raheem Sterling) as”unacceptable”.
The youngster is understood to be worked nicely since then but will be offered a range of aid if he needs it.
