Danny Rose: ‘I’ve told my family not to travel to World Cup over racism fears’

first_img Rose told his family not to travel to Russia for last summer’s World Cup over fears of racism England defender Danny Rose has told his family not to travel to the World Cup in Russia over fears of racist abuse.The Tottenham left-back has revealed his family are heartbroken they will not be able to see him play in his first World Cup this summer, because he has told them to stay at home.In an interview with the London Evening Standard, Rose said he has become ‘numb’ to racism in football and slammed FIFA for their ‘laughable’ attempts to punish those found guilty of abusing players.Rose has 17 caps for England and is preparing for his first ever World CupIncidents of racism have plagued the game in Russia for years, at both club and international level, and there are fears from many nations that their players could be targeted during this summer’s tournament.The Russian Football Union recently fined £22,000 after racist chants were heard during a friendly against France in March. The 3-1 victory for the French was held at the Krestovsky Stadium in St Petersburg – one of the World Cup venues.Rose branded the fine ‘disgusting’ and said he had to tell his family to stay away from Russia this summer over fears for their safety.The 27-year-old said: “I’m not worried for myself, but I’ve told my family I don’t want them going out there because of racism and anything else that may ­happen.“I don’t want to be worrying when I’m trying to prepare for games for my family’s safety.“If anything ­happens to me, it wouldn’t affect me like it would if my family had been abused. I’m fine with whatever may or may not happen, and I like to think I’ll be able to deal with it in the right way.LISTEN BACK: John Barnes in heated debate over racism at the World Cup in Russia – talkSPORT EXCLUSIVE“My dad’s really upset – I could hear it in his voice,” the Spurs star added.“He said he may never get a chance again to come and watch me in a World Cup. That was emotional, hearing that. It’s really sad. It’s just how it is.“Somehow Russia got the World Cup and we have to get on with it.”Rose in action against Nigeria in the first of England’s World Cup warm-up gamesAsked about FIFA’s attempts to stamp racism out of football, Rose said: “A £22,000 fine is disgusting.“What do they [FIFA] expect? I don’t want to sound arrogant but if I had been fined £22,000 – without sounding big-headed – it wouldn’t make a difference. A country being fined £22,000 is just laughable.”Rose has reason to be suspicious when it comes to the punishments dished out for racism.He was sent off after the final whistle of an under-21 clash with Serbia in 2012 after suffering racial abuse and reacting at the end of the match.“I have no faith in the justice system so I don’t let anything affect me,” he added.“I didn’t get any support after Serbia. I never had a conversation with anybody outside of England.“I’m just numb to it now. If I’m racially abused out there, I’m abused. Nothing is going to change. I just get on with it. It shouldn’t be like that but it is.“I don’t want to sound like a cry baby. There are millions of people who have it much worse than I’ve had it. We’re big enough to deal with it and we’ve got the right people around us to help if anything was to occur.”Asked if England’s players have discussed walking off the pitch, Rose said: “We’ve discussed it, but until it actually happens and under what circumstances, it’s hard to say what you’d actually do.” 3last_img read more
