BA hits out over abuse claims

Published Add your comment

Newcastle striker Demba Ba has criticised spectators who allegedly racially abused players during Saturday's 0-0 friendly draw at Den Haag.

Reports claim some sections of the home crowd at the Kyocera Stadium aimed chants at several members of the Magpies' team, prompting the club to raise the issue privately with their hosts.

Many of the Newcastle players did not hear the abuse, although midfielder Cheick Tiote, who played his football in Holland with FC Twente before moving to Tyneside was said to be furious after the game.
