Leeds United fan arrested for alleged racial abuse towards Arsenal players

A Leeds United supporter has been arrested by police for alleged racial abuse towards Arsenal players as his side lost 4-1 at Elland Road.

In the 33rd minute, Rob Holding approached the fourth official with a complaint that he'd heard 'racial abuse' from a home fan.

After the game, Leeds shared the following statement: "Racism will not be tolerated at Leeds United and any supporter found to be using racist language will be subject to a life time ban for all Leeds United games."

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta expressed his disappointment in the post-match interview as well. He said: "It is very disappointing because we have done so much in football to try to avoid that.

"The situation existed and was reported. It has to be dealt with by the authorities. I have nothing more to say about it."
