FA to offer Bukayo Saka, Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford option to pursue criminal action over racial abuse

Following Sunday’s Euros final defeat, the Football Association will offer Bukayo Saka, Jadon Sancho, and Marcus Rashford the option of pursuing criminal action against those who targeted them with horrific racial insults.

On Sunday, the England trio missed a penalty shootout against Italy at Wembley, prompting vile social media insults from haters.

According to Mail Online, the FA is planning a meeting to discuss the latest incident of racial abuse and the disgusting mob that rushed Wembley Stadium.

The regulatory body of English football will communicate with Saka, Sancho, and Rashford individually to discuss the next steps.

The FA will fully back any decision to prosecute if the players decide they are willing to go through the process, though historically footballers have shown a reluctance to do so.

The organisation has already been in touch with the relevant social media companies in a bid to ascertain whether the accounts in question are traceable.

The FA are also trying to discover whether the abuse originated from accounts that are based in the United Kingdom or overseas.
