Carl Ikeme And George Elokobi


Wolves have made an official complaint to Walsall and the Football Association after Carl Ikeme and George Elokobi were racially abused by individuals in the crowd at the game on Saturday.

Ikeme and Elokobi both reported, to Wolves’ management staff,  the abuse which, respectively, came from behind the goal in the second half of Saturday’s game at the Banks’s Stadium and during the first half when Elokobi, a substitute, was  warming up.

The complaint relates to a small number of individuals in the crowd at Saturday’s game and will not sour the good relationship that exists between the two clubs.

Both Wolves and Walsall are fiercely committed to stamping out all types of discrimination within football and will vigorously investigate all allegations of racist abuse. 

Wolves will always strongly support its players who are the victims of discrimination, and Carl Ikeme and George Elokobi both displayed admirable restraint in the face of receiving the abuse on Saturday.
