Trabzonspor midfielder John Obi Mikel broke down in tears while speaking about the abuse he and his family received on social media.

In an emotional interview after the club’s 2-1 win against Fenerbache, the former Chelsea midfielder opened up about the situation.

He identified racism in the messages, and stated his girlfriend Olga Diyachenka and four-year-old twin daughters.

“A lot has been said about this – the issue of racism but since I’ve been here, my team and colleagues at Trabzonspor have been very nice to me, there’s not been any issue.” he told Turkish TV.

“After the game on Saturday I started getting messages on my Instagram, even my girlfriend getting instant messages of racism and hatred.

“Very scary messages towards me and my family and kids. There’s no place for this.

“I don’t think this should be happening and I think these people should be held responsible. They shouldn’t be allowed to come to games.

“I’m very disappointed with this – especially my girlfriend, my family, my kids. They are only four years old, why do you talk about my kids?

“I am very sad about this, it’s a very disturbing time for me.”
