Norwich inform police of racist tweets at Sébastien Bassong
The Cameroon defender headed a late equaliser to earn the Canaries a 1-1 draw at Everton
Monday 26 November 2012
Norwich chief executive David McNally has confirmed the club will speak to police about alleged racist comments directed at defender Sébastien Bassong.
The Cameroon defender headed a late equaliser to earn the Canaries a 1-1 draw at Everton in the Premier League on Saturday and was last night believed to be the subject of racist abuse on Twitter. McNally tweeted yesterday: "For those asking last night, we will be following up with the police regarding the racist comments reported after the game."
He later added: "Not relevant which team they support. Don't accept racism from anyone and so these comments will be reported to the police." On the pitch, it was another frustrating result for Everton, who led through Steven Naismith but have now won only one of their last seven matches, a sequence which has included five draws.
Manager David Moyes said: "We were probably looking to just see the game through but unfortunately we couldn't.
"There were some good bits of play but our good bits of play are not resulting in goals, or even chances at times. Our good bits of play tend to peter out at the edge of the box. We have to try to make that better."
