Racism: Trabzonspor backs Mikel, files criminal complaint against Fenerbahce Supporters

Turkish side Trabzonspor have revealed they have filed a criminal complaint after former Super Eagles skipper John Obi Mikel was allegedly the target of racist abuse from Fenerbahce supporters.

The 32-year-old was reported to have been targeted by abusive and harmful messages after the two sides played each other in the Turkish Super Lig on Saturday.


 

In a statement released on Monday, Trabzonspor wrote: ‘Racism is a shelter for (the) helpless and ignorant.

 

‘We condemn the racist attacks against our player Obi Mikel after the match against Fenerbahce and we bring to the public attention that a criminal complaint has been filed against the assailants. #WeStandwithObi #SayNoToRacism’

 

 

Obi Mikel played out the 90 minutes but it was the alleged abuse that dominated headlines in local media following the final whistle.
