West Ham United has had to suspend her director of player recruitment, Tony Henry for making racist remarks about African players.
Henry told agents in the transfer window that they don’t want to sign any more African players.
After being confronted by Sportsmail, Henry made the shocking admission that West Ham do indeed want to limit the number of African players because ‘they have a bad attitude’ and ’cause mayhem’ when they are not in the team.
West Ham said in a statement on Thursday: ‘The Club can confirm that Director of Player Recruitment Tony Henry has been suspended pending a full and thorough investigation. West Ham United will not tolerate any type of discrimination and has, therefore, acted swiftly due to the serious nature of these claims.
“The West Ham United family is an inclusive one where, regardless of gender, age, ability, race, religion or sexual orientation, everybody feels welcome and included.
“The Club will make no further comment until the investigation has been concluded.”
