Wolves condemn ‘unacceptable’ alleged racist abuse in friendly with Farense

Wolverhampton Wanderers have expressed their disappointment after one of their players was allegedly racially abused during a friendly match with SC Farense on Sunday.

The Premier League club drew 1-1 with Farense in Faro, Portugal, with Hwang Hee-Chan scoring a penalty, but the game was marred by abuse from fans of the hosts.

Wolves released a statement on Twitter, writing: “We are very disappointed to report that one of our players was the target of discriminatory abuse from opposition fans during this evening’s game with SC Farense.

“We will be reporting the incident to UEFA and asking our opponent and relevant authorities to investigate. We are offering our full support to the player involved.

“Racism in any form is completely unacceptable and should never be left unchallenged.”

Wolves begin their Premier League season with a trip to Elland Road to face Leeds next Saturday.

They then face newly-promoted Fulham at home the following weekend.
