Chelsea F.C striker, Tammy Abraham was subjected to racist abuse when he missed his spot kick in Chelsea’s Super Cup defeat to Liverpool.

After Frank Lampard described the racist abuse as disgusting, Tammy Abraham has had his say on the abuse he was subjected to.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Abraham said, “Things happen in football. Unfortunately for me I was on the receiving end. I have had experiences of taking penalties under pressure [and] tucking them away. Unfortunately for me I missed. I was getting some abuse but for me I am a positive guy.”

Abraham went on to describe the racist comments as rubbish. He said, “I don’t listen to the rubbish, to the people who try to bring you down. I just try to keep the focus on me and keep going.”
