Ghanaian youngster Jordi Osei-Tutu has expressed his gratitude to Arsenal and VfL Bochum for their support after he was racially abused in a friendly on Wednesday.
Osei-Tutu, who has joined German second-tier side Bochum on a season-long loan deal from the Arsenal, was visibly upset after an altercation with St. Gallen player.
Reports claim that the 20-year-old was racially abused.
"I am very disappointed that I was racially abused last night," he said.
"Nobody should ever be discriminated against and it is really hard to understand how a fellow professional footballer can behave disrespectfully in this way.
"Arsenal and VfL Bochum have given me great support and I hope that we can finally demonstrate that racism has no place in football".
