“Solves our winger issues. I can’t see that gorilla faced Iwobi runningdown the flank again.

“He’s so bad ya,” read the screenshot of her WhatsApp conversation with a friend.

To which, Esha replied, “Haha… I don’t know why they don’t bench him more.”

MySportDab report on Twitter, Esha has now apologised and claimed she did not realise it was racist.

“Guys I am sorry you thought it was racist. Was bad on my part, being asports lover. Sorry guys, forgive the stupidity. It was us discussing our frustration during the game. Sorry as I didn’t realise it was directed towards racism. Laughed over the spur of the moment, which was the game’s result guys. Been a victim of racism myself before. But this is not something I am proud of. It was a fault, sorry guys,” Esha wrote.
