Melbourne Victory statement

Following Saturday night’s A-League match, the club became aware of racist comments on social media directed towards Adelaide United player, Kusini Yengi.

Melbourne Victory Football Club does not condone or tolerate racism in any form.

This club has been built on embracing diversity and sees football as a platform to unite fans no matter what background.

To see that Kusini Yengi has been subjected to racist online comments overnight is incredibly disappointing and the club has been working with Adelaide United and the relevant authorities to investigate this matter further.
