Hughton: Remarks saddened me

Norwich manager Chris Hughton has revealed he was left "saddened and disappointed" after suffering racist abuse on Facebook.

Last Updated: 05/10/13 at 14:20 Post Comment   

Hughton was targeted on the social media site in the wake of City's 1-0 win at Stoke last weekend.

Speaking ahead of Norwich's Sky Live clash with Chelsea at Carrow Road on Sunday, he admitted more needed to be done to combat the problem of racism.

"I'm saddened and disappointed by alleged racist comments on social media. It's been passed to the appropriate people to be dealt with," said Hughton.

"As a club we are working hard to tackle discrimination, as are organisations like Kick It Out. That work needs to continue."

As for the game with Chelsea, Hughton says they will take confidence from their display against Stoke but conceded they will face a much stiffer test against Jose Mourinho's side.

"We played really well at Stoke and there's been a good, confident feel throughout the group during the week," he added.

"Alex Tettey did very well at Stoke which allowed (Leroy) Fer and (Jonny) Howson a bit more freedom. Alex is an excellent, competitive player

"Chelsea have quality throughout their squad. We have to make sure our work ethic is spot on again and that we keep possession well."

Norwich take on Chelsea, live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 12:30pm on Sunday

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
