Football fans online have registered their anger and displeasure at a United Kingdom-based website after it ignored Kelechi Iheanacho’s picture in its post after Leicester City won the Community Shield on Saturday.
The football website “Football Daily” used Jamie Vardy’s image as the display picture of its post immediately after Leicester City’s victory over Manchester City at Wembley.
However, fans on Twitter criticized the website for ignoring Iheanacho’s picture whose image they felt out to be used since he scored the winning goal of the match.
See some reactions below
There is no room for Racism but y'all are the master of Racism, Kelechi scored the only goal of the game but you couldn't use his Picture because of Racism, y'all have a long way to go
