NEIL ADAMS ON ALLEGED RACIST REMARK DURING LEEDS GAME

City boss expands on incident involving Cameron Jerome

PLAY was delayed midway through the first half of Norwich City's 1-1 draw with Leeds United on Tuesday when referee Mark Clattenburg addressed Neil Adams and his counterpart Darko Milanic.

This came after an incident on the pitch involving Cameron Jerome and visiting defender Giuseppe Bellusci, and City’s boss expanded on it when questioned after the game.

“Cameron has alleged that a racist remark was made on the pitch, which is why he was reacting as he was,” he said.

“I think Mark Clattenburg dealt with it well because of obviously the nature of what happened. He came over and explained to Darko and myself what I’m saying to you now; that he’d gone over to Cameron, Cameron had said to the referee a racist remark had been made, and that’s why he came over and explained.

“He spoke to the players involved at half-time with a representative from each of the clubs, I think he’s taken statements after the game and obviously the referee will submit a report to the FA and obviously we’ll all take it from there.”
