Huddersfield’s Philip Billing racially abused

Huddersfield midfielder Philip Billing has shared racial abuse he received on social media.

The 22-year-old tweeted a private message he had been sent on Instagram, accompanied by a 'thumbs down' emoji.

In the expletive-ridden message, Billing, a Denmark international of Nigerian descent, was called a “black donkey” and told to “leave our club”.

Billing, who was named youth player of the season in 2016, joined the Terriers in 2014 and has made 74 senior appearances for the club.
