- Tammy Abraham has vowed to continue taking penalties despite being targeted by vile racist abuse
- The forward missed from the spot to send the UEFA Super Cup to Anfield - and was then racially abused online
- Chelsea will battle Leicester City in the Premier League this weekend
Tammy Abraham has revealed his next line of action following racists’ abuse after his penalty miss for Chelsea against Liverpool in the Super Cup clash.
Abraham’s saved spot-kick saw the Reds cart home the Super Cup and gave trolls a window to blast him with offensive tweets on social media.
One tweet aimed at the Chelsea forward read: “Tammy Abraham f*** off back to the jungle you silly cotton picking dirt n***er.”
And another offensive tweet added: “F****** n*****”, alongside a video of the Ku Klux Klan lynching.
Already, Anti-racism watchdog Kick It Out has faulted the messages, even as they drummed support for the Chelsea star in a statement: “Such abuse is now increasingly predictable, but no less disgusting.
“We send our support to Tammy and reiterate our call for Twitter and other social media companies to clamp down on this level of abuse.
"This is a call to action – we want to know what they are going to do to tackle this insidious problem.”
However, despite missing the decisive penalty, Tammy told The Mirror, he would not be discouraged as he will continue stepping forward for more spot-kicks in the future.
“I’ve scored a few. Unfortunately I missed one of the most important ones for Chelsea.
“They say the top players always miss penalties and it’s about how you react. I’ve just got to keep pushing myself.

“I’m always someone who believes in myself in penalties. I had a few last season and a few important ones. Unfortunately this was probably one of my most important ones I missed.
“It’s about how I react and just get my head up. The boys have made it feel like nothing has even happened. It’s a great bunch of boys now we’ve just got to focus on the game against Leicester,” Tammy summed up.
