After the FA concluded it’s investigation into the claim that Marvin Sordell was racially abused at The Den, Millwall have released a statement.

The full statement can be read by Clicking Here.

‘Having completed our investigations into the incident, we have identified and interviewed a 13 year old boy who admitted a verbal exchange with Marvin Sordell in which abuse was used. The individual has been banned from Millwall matches for the foreseeable future, but as a club we also felt, given the boy’s age and background, we had a duty to play our part in attempting to educate and rehabilitate him. Accordingly, we have offered to put him through one of our education programmes, run by Millwall For All in the hope that we can change his outlook on equality, racism and life in general.

‘In the meantime, the boy has written a letter to Marvin Sordell offering his apology, which has been accepted.’
