The newly signed Mykhailo Mudryk to Chelsea for £80M had to apologize during this week for using racial slur in a rap music he lip synced to on his social media handle TikTok.
Mykhailo Mudryk’s representatives put out a statement
“Mykhailo is deeply sorry for any offence caused by the video. His intention was to solely recite the lyrics of a song. Mykhailo regrets his decision and wholeheartedly accepts it’s not appropriate.”
Kick it out have also released a statement
“Kick it Out condemns the use of all racial slurs, irrespective of context. The use of this term by high profile figures in football can only serve to alienate people from the game.”
