Norwich player accuses Leeds rival of racial abuse
NORWICH, England (AP) — Norwich manager Neil Adams says striker Cameron Jerome accused a Leeds rival of racially abusing him during an English second-tier match.
Referee Mark Clattenburg halted the game in the first half at Carrow Road after receiving a complaint from Jerome, who is black, following a verbal clash with Leeds defender Giuseppe Bellusci.
The official addressed both managers on the sidelines before giving Bellusci a warning, although he booked Jerome moments later for clattering into the Leeds player.
Adams said after the 1-1 draw that “Cameron Jerome has alleged he was the subject of a racist remark.”
Leeds manager Darko Milanic says the allegation “is all very new to me.”
