Ipswich Town have released a statement in response to a video containing discriminatory comments aimed at Wanderers’ Dapo Afolayan.

The video was posted by an apparent Ipswich fan following this afternoon’s League One fixture.

Afolayan scored twice as the Whites ran out 5-2 winners at Portman Road.

The statement reads: "The club is aware of a video on social media that appears to have been filmed during today’s fixture with Bolton Wanderers at Portman Road.

"We are conducting a thorough investigation into the matter, and we have made the relevant authorities aware, including the police.

"Ipswich Town Football Club does not tolerate discrimination of any kind and will not hesitate to take strong, but appropriate, action.

"We encourage supporters to report any such behaviour by speaking to their nearest steward or through the Kick It Out app. We will not be commenting more at this time."

Wanderers also commented on the video, saying: “We're disgusted to have learned of discriminatory and hateful comments directed at Dapo Afolayan in a video that appears to have been filmed by an Ipswich fan during today's game.

“We show our full support to Dapo and commend the direct approach to taking action by Ipswich  Town.”

Earlier in the week, Wanderers forward Elias Kachunga received a series of messages containing racist language on social media.

The Football Association recently urged social media companies to “step up and take accountability” including taking action to “ban abusers from their platforms”.

That followed the high-profile abuse of three England players – Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho - after the Euros.
