United try to track down Lukaku chanters

Manchester United have requested CCTV footage showing fans chanting about Romelu Lukaku during the win at Southampton on Saturday.

The player had asked for fans to stop singing the song about the size of his penis, but it seems his pleas have fallen on deaf ears.

A statement from the club reads:

“The club and the player have been clear in asking for an end to the chant. The club is in discussion with the police and has asked for CCTV footage from Southampton.”

Anti-discrimination group Kick It Out have also commeented, saying “Kick It Out would like to reiterate its stance that such behaviour has no place in football.

“Romelu Lukaku himself has requested that the supporters ‘move on’ from singing the chant in question and Manchester United now has a responsibility to ensure that the request is complied with.”
