Ex-Reds doctor victim of racist incident prior to Premier League game

Posted by

Former Liverpool club doctor Zaf Iqbal took to Twitter on Sunday as he and his family were victims of a racist comment outside Selhurst Park.

Now employed by Crystal Palace, Dr Iqbal was taking his children to their first game as the Eagles faced Bournemouth on the final day. What should have been the highlight of their week turned into an uncomfortable afternoon.

As his tweets say, racism is not just a football problem – society needs to change. There is absolutely no place for this sort of thing within football or elsewhere.

It would have been a terrible experience for both him and his children to go through – and it should not have a place in society. Unfortunately, for now, though, the issue persists.

Hopefully, it will not put off any of them from visiting Selhurst Park again.
