Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club have made an official complaint to the FA and Walsall Football Club over racist abuse directed at their players.

They assert that Carl Ikeme and George Elokobi were the subjects of racial abuse at Banks Stadiums during the teams match on Saturday.

A statement on the Wolves website stated: “The complaint relates to a small number of individuals in the crowd at Saturday’s game and will not sour the good relationship that exists between the two clubs.”

Ikeme and Elokobi had both reported incidents of racial abuse during the game to members of Wolves management.

Walsall have also released a statement saying: “We are taking this matter very seriously and will fully co-operate with West Midlands Police and Wolverhampton Wanderers throughout this investigation.”
