Charlton’s Danny Haynes and Emmanuel Frimpong have decided not to make an official complaint about the racial abuse they claimed to have suffered at Millwall.
Both Addicks players took to Twitter to claim they were abused by Millwall supporters following the goalless draw at The Den on Saturday.
But a statement from Charlton read: “Following reports of the racial abuse of Charlton players during Saturday’s match against Millwall, and subsequent consultation between the club officials, the police and players concerned, it has been decided that no formal complaint will be made to the police.
“Charlton are satisfied that Millwall are taking the issue of racism by supporters very seriously.”
The claims came a month after Bolton striker Marvin Sordell also said on Twitter that he and some of his team-mates had been racially abused while they warmed up on the touchline at The Den, leading to Millwall banning a 13-year-old fan.
