Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham says his mother was reduced to tears by the racist abuse he received after the Uefa Super Cup final.

Abraham missed the decisive penalty in the shootout to give Liverpool victory in Istanbul last month and was then subjected to abuse on social media.

"I remember speaking to my mum, she was emotional, she was in tears," 21-year-old Abraham told CNN.

A Chelsea spokesman said the club was "disgusted" with the "abhorrent" posts.

In August, Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian kept out Abraham's spot-kick to secure a 5-4 shootout victory for the Champions League winners after it had finished 2-2 after extra-time.

Abraham, who has since scored four times in Chelsea's past two matches, added: "It's obviously not nice, seeing your son getting abused. My mum was just thinking, 'Why him?'

"For me, I am a strong character, it doesn't affect me as much, but it could affect people who don't have my personality.

"I was sat in the changing room straight after the game and went on my phone. I wasn't going to shy away from the situation, although I did have some supportive messages. The other side is not nice to hear.

"I went through a lot of emotion after the penalty miss. I had experience of taking penalties last season, big ones as well. Everyone misses penalties. To miss the penalty... I was devastated and I had a lot of abuse after."

Abraham, who has made two international appearances for England, praised the support he has received from his club, his team-mates and his manager.

"Frank Lampard always had his arm around my shoulder lifting me up, the boys as well, it was like I never missed with the way they supported me and lifted me up - that is exactly what I needed," added Abraham.

He should be grateful for the racist abuses.
Only a myopic mediocre player will let those racial slurs kill their self-esteem because it is the best steam to power their dreams as they've been proven to bring out the best in football players.

See Mario Balotelli,
See Victor Moses,
See Patrice Evra,
See Clarence Seedorf.
See Mesut Ozil
See Zinedine Zidane
See Samuel Etoo.

Players like Michael Owen didn't attain their best potentials in football because they were never privileged to be racially abused.

Racism can't end in FIFA because the term "Fair Play" is in itself racist. It subliminally means that the game of soccer is for the light skinned.

The amount of tribalism I've seen on nairaland don't let me know what to say when I see post about racism, I can't even define what tribalism is before I join seun's forum

But the confusing thing is that just like our online political support and voting online tribalism do not actually exist real-life in the south

Igbo and Yoruba goes about without issue, work together peacefully, attend same school etc

I'm sure there are blogs/forum over there that this White practice their racism, where innocent and non-racist teens are converted to full blown racist

Blacks don't like themselves but they are quick to condemn racism when a white man calls them black. Blacks always behaving like low budget beings.
