Peterborough United striker asks supporters to alter chant about him
Peterborough United striker Ivan Toney has called on fans to alter a chant about him which is sung during matches.
The in-form striker issued a statement through the club this afternoon (Tuesday) where he asked supporters to create a “family version of the song”.
Although he said he was not personally offended by the lyrics, they are considered to play up to a racial stereotype.
The Posh forward said: “I want to thank the supporters for the way they have backed me since I arrived at the football club. It is great to feel loved by the fans.
“Whilst the song is not offensive to me, it would be great to hear a new family version of the song so all of the young supporters in the stadium can join in too.”
