One of the unfortunate things that happened during Newcastle’s 0-0 draw with Den Haag last night, was alleged racial abuse against some of the Newcastle players at the Kyocera Stadium.

And the Tyneside club have confirmed they will be pursuing the matter with the Den Haag club, since the chanting came from the home section of the crowd.
A Newcastle spokesman has confirmed in a statement that Newcastle will be handling the issue with the Eredivisie club, but it will be done privately.
This is what the Newcastle spokesman said in a statement:
“In relation to alleged racist chants reported during Newcastle United’s friendly against Den Haag today, the club will be raising the matter with officials at Den Haag and the issue will be dealt with privately.”
We hope that Newcastle can get to the bottom of this and maybe identify those who are guilty and take any legal steps they can to punish the perpetrators.
