Rhian Brewster revealed his anger after suffering racial abuse in a youth game against Spartak Moscow

Jurgen Klopp has pledged Rhian Brewster will get "all the support he needs" from Liverpool, after the teenager's claims of persistent racial abuse.

The 17-year-old - who is yet to make his debut for Liverpool's first team - claimed Thursday UEFA "don't really care" about racism.

The incident prompted Brewster to speak out in a newspaper interview, where he claimed that racial abuse had been a regular occurrence for him since aged 12.

The FA added they wanted to collaborate closely with UEFA and world governing body Federation Internationale de Football Association over the issue.

Rides on RTD buses, trains to be free on New Year's Eve
Fritcke suggests, if you plan on riding the bus or light rail downtown, get off at the Central and Van Buren station. Free public transit will give people more options for a safe ride to their destination and home again.


Kick It Out, a football anti-racism organisation, praised Brewster, who also said an England Under-17 team-mate Morgan Gibbs-White was called a "monkey" by a Spanish opponent during the World Cup final, for going public. UEFA's disciplinary regulations stipulate that any player found guilty of racist abuse should be banned for a minimum of 10 matches.

"I'm thinking to myself: 'Well, I'm standing behind a banner but does it really stop them from saying it?'"

And Brewster believes complaints need to be dealt with better by the authorities - particularly UEFA, who failed to take action on several occasions when the striker was representing England and Liverpool.

"To be honest, I don't think there is any point". They don't really care.

"That means to a lot of people then it doesn't happen but obviously it happens all the time".

"I can't believe that people have these kind of thoughts still in their mind, it's so odd in this world that is happens".
