Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vetroghen, has shown an incredible act of sportsmanship, as he has apologised to Chelsea Antonio Rudiger over the racist incident that happened during their match over the weekend.
The German international heard racist chants directed towards him, during the Blues 2-0 victory over their London rival.
The match was marred by racist chants, an event that lead to three different announcements in the stadium urging the fans to stop and concentrate on football. Rudiger had earlier reported the actions of the fans to his captain, Cesar Azpilicueta and later to the refree.
Tottenham have confirmed that they will launch an inquiry into what happened during the match while Rudiger has called for strict action to be taken against the minority group involved.
Vetroghen told the Evening Standard that, he could not believe that people are still into what he termed a disgraceful act, he continued to say that the club is not recognized with such idiots and finally sending apology to Rudiger.
The incident in North London is just one among racist incident affecting English football, a Manchester City fan was arrested and ban for life after he was caught on camera directing racist gesture towards Manchester United midfielder Fred, during the Manchester derby.
The Football Association have also released a strong statement condemning the acts, and they have pledged to fight aagainst future occurrence.
