Tottenham’s Danny Rose has admitted he is looking forward to the end of his football career due to the racist abuse he’s suffered in his career and the discrimination that remains in football, even in 2019.

The left-back was a victim of racist abuse whilst playing for England’s U21’s against Serbia in 2012 and seven years later, Rose suffered more whilst Gareth Southgate’s side travelled to Montenegro.

Speaking to the Mirror, Rose said: “I’ve had enough. At the minute, the way that I programme myself I just think, ‘I’ve got five or six more years left in football and I just can’t wait to see the back of it.”

“Seeing how things are done in the game at the minute, it’s just, ‘Whatever!’, isn’t it? I just want to get out of it,” the 28-year-old added.

“I feel I‘ve for five or six more years left and I just want to enjoy football as much as I can. There is so much politics and whatever in football and I just can’t wait to see the back of it, to be honest.”

Rose joins Raheem Sterling in speaking out against racism and the Manchester City winger blasted Juventus’ Leonardo Bonucci after the Italian said team-mate Moise Kean, 19, should share the responsibility for being racially abused by Cagliari fans.

It’s yet to be seen which action will be taken to combat the recent racism in football, though the Premier League are set for meetings with the FA and the Football League to devise a plan to prevent incidents occurring as frequently as they are.
