McLean Questions Teammates Support Over Discrimination

He's wondering why his colleagues have not shown him public support.

Republic of Ireland player James McClean has asked why his international colleagues have not shown him public support over the discrimination he has received.

The Derry native has taken to Facebook to query why he hasn't got the same level of backing that has been given towards the Black Lives Matter campaign.

In the social media post, McClean strongly condemned racial abuse directed towards his Irish team-mate David McGoldrick and Crystal Palace player Wilfried Zaha in recent days.

He went on to question why he hasn't had people in his corner over the sectarian abuse he has received, some of which has come from his stance of not wearing a poppy around Remembrance Day commemorations.
