Leicester defender suspended after BNP row
Leicester City defender Wayne Brown’s position at the club looks to be in doubt after a racial outburst pointed towards ethnic minorities shocked and divided team-mates.
Brown allegedly boasted to his team that he voted for far-right political group the British National Party in the recent British elections.
After a training session Brown, who was born in Barking where BNP leader Nick Griffin ran for election and lost, went on a rant claiming ethnic minorities were ‘killing this country’.
The tirade left team-mates fuming in a dressing room made up of Asian, black and mixed-race players.
The ex-Hull player was suspended from the club’s Championship playoff semi-final against Cardiff, which Leicester lost on penalties.
Leicester City released a statement saying: “Leicester City Football Club would like to issue the following statement regarding the recent enquiries concerning Leicester City player, Wayne Brown.
“Wayne Brown remains a Leicester City player and any alleged incidents will be investigated and dealt with internally.”
