The Heat: Racism in football

The Heat

Racism in football again hit the headlines in Europe. Last Tuesday, a black player for Italian team Juventus was jeered by fans after scoring in a road game against Cagliari.

It led to a storm of protest at the highest level of the sport – particularly after another high profile incident just a week before.

CGTN’s Guy Henderson reports on a German club that’s no stranger to such abuse.
