Mount hails Spurs fans over racism stand
MASON MOUNT has hailed Spurs fans for standing in defiance of the racists who turned on Bukayo Saka.
Arsenal midfielder Saka, 19, was one of three black England stars to suffer horrible abuse this summer after missing a penalty in the Euro 2020 final.
However, the both Mason Mount and Bukayo Saka joined forces during Euro 2020 tournaments.
Mounts believes Spurs fans reactions during pre-season friendly against their fierce rivals, means that the fight against discrimination CAN be won.
Mount, 22, said: “It’s not acceptable for someone to go through something like that.
“Straight after the game all of us got round the boys and tried to console them.”
“You could see on their faces how much it meant to them.”
“Then I look at what has happened since. The games he has played in since.
“To play away at Tottenham in pre-season and see him get a standing ovation when he came on . . . and at Brentford, too.
“That is what football’s about. Everyone coming together to get behind someone like Saks”
“one of the best guys I have met in football. That is special. It gives you hope.”
International rookie Saka, plus Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho, missed from the spot as England were beaten by Italy at Wembley.
