Rose – I ‘cannot wait to see the back of football’ due to racism

Rose, 28, was one of several players targeted by alleged racist chanting during England’s 5-1 thrashing of Montenegro in Podgorica in Euro 2020 qualifying last month.

While UEFA has charged Montenegro with racist behavior, the left-back is so frustrated with the authorities he cannot wait to retire.

“How I program  myself is that I think I’ve got five or six more years left in football, and I just can’t wait to see the back of it,” Rose said.

“Seeing how things are done in the game at the minute, you just have to get on with it. There is so much politics in football. I can’t wait to see the back of it.”

Rose said current punishments for racism were a “farce” as he blasted authorities for being soft-handed while expecting change.

“When countries only get fined what I’d probably spend on a night out in London, what do you expect? When the punishment is not as harsh, what do you expect?” he said.
