Read More8 Scenes That Prove TV Has Gone Too Far Police contacted the 56-year-old former England striker after he revealed the vile messages on social media. The popular Match of the Day pundit posted a screenshot of the disgusting comments and captioned them with: “I know I’m not meant to look at them but these messages still hit me so hard man. This is a child!!! “You are a f***ing monkey’, ‘C*** c**n monkey n*****’. Direct message to me on IG. This kid [h]as a direct line into me & is able to send this without any worry.” The messages were all sent from the same account, and included sickening remarks such as “You are a f***ing monkey”, “Your like 65 years old if I get corona I will cough in your face and give you your death sentence”, and “I hate all your family”. Wright quickly received plenty of support, and the Met Police publicly responded to his grim revelation. They tweeted: “Hi, If you wish to report this incident please DM us.” Arsenal fan and GMB TV host Piers Morgan responded: “My god.. this is disgusting. Who are his parents? Who are his teachers? “So sorry you’ve had to endure this racist filth, Legend.” Fellow TV host Dan Walker said: “I’m so sorry you have to see and read that. “I’m sure you also know there an awful lot of love for you out there and 99.99% of people will be disgusted and ashamed that you have received those messages.” And Sky Sports presenter Biance Westwood said: “Absolutely shocking.

Sunderland chairman Ellis Short looks to hold formal talks with Sam Allardyce

first_imgSunderland chairman Ellis Short hopes to hold formal discussions with Sam Allardyce over the next 48 hours as he attempts to identify Dick Advocaat’s replacement. The Black Cats hope to have a new head coach – or manager, depending on the job description presented to potential candidates – in post before their next game, the Barclays Premier League trip to West Brom on October 17. Eight days later, they entertain struggling derby rivals Newcastle, a fixture which has seen the last three managers pitched into battle with their neighbours in their second game in charge and win on each occasion. But they are determined not to appoint in haste and get it wrong and if Allardyce, their preferred option, is not keen, they will move on and look to do so quickly. Sources on Wearside have indicated that there has been significant interest in the job vacated by 68-year-old Advocaat last Sunday despite their parlous league position – they lie 19th in the table and are yet to win a league game this season – although a shortlist of front-runners has been identified. Burnley’s Sean Dyche also interests Sunderland, but the compensation package which would be needed to prise him across the Pennines might prove prohibitive even if he could be tempted away from Turf Moor. Former Leicester boss Nigel Pearson and American Bob Bradley have also narrowed in the betting in recent days, although it is understood neither figures particularly prominently in the names being mentioned within the Stadium of Light. Despite days of speculation, which has seen the former West Ham boss’ odds for the job plummet, there has as yet been no direct contact with the dialogue between the two camps so far effectively limited to talks about talks. However, Press Association Sport understands Short is now in London and wants to know one way or the other if Allardyce, who is still on holiday in Spain, is interested in the vacancy and if so, what would be needed to persuade him to resume his career at the Stadium of Light. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
