Genk Takes Action Against Racism After Tolu Arokodare Receives Abusive Comments

KRC Genk lost 0-3 to Club Brugge after an overall mediocre performance. Striker Tolu Arokodare, who was important to his team in the weeks before, missed a penalty at 0-0. Afterwards he received a lot of racist comments via social media. Genk is rightly taking action.

Racism towards Tolu

“After the match against Club Brugge, Tolu received a series of racist reactions on social media. KRC Genk and everyone involved with the club condemns the reactions 100%. Racism has no place. Not in football stadiums, not on social media. media, nowhere. Unfortunately, racism is still deeply rooted in football and by extension in society as a whole. It is a shared responsibility to put a stop to this. As a club, we are doing everything we can to track down those responsible and to report it to the police,” Genk said.

Last matches going well

Genk is tackling this well and the people who felt it necessary to give these objectionable reactions deserve a severe punishment.

Tolu was blamed for the defeat, but the striker has been doing well in recent weeks. He was good for a goal at KV Mechelen, which yielded a point. Afterwards he was also accurate against RWDM and perhaps the best player against Charleroi. With 11 goals and 3 assists in 1,737 minutes, he is also good for a goal or assist every 124 minutes. Which is certainly not a bad average.
