Stormzy launches scathing attack on David James after his comment on Eni Aluko

David James has deleted tweets about Eni Aluko after rapper Stormzy launched a scathing attack on the former England goalkeeper and the Football Association over the racism scandal involving Mark Sampson.

The influential grime artist unleashed a torrent of angry abuse at the FA and James after news broke that the FA had apologised to Aluko and Chelsea team-mate Drew Spence following an independent report that concluded both had been subjected to discriminatory remarks by former England manager Sampson.

Stormzy,  clearly incensed by the news and called out James directly over a tweet the former Liverpool goalkeeper had posted after Sampson was sacked last month, in which he suggested that Aluko was a ‘wasted talent’ who ‘can’t deal with the fact they aren’t good enough’.

 

‘Where’s David james the absolute chief,’ said Stormzy, before then reposting James’ tweet from 20 September, the day Sampson was sacked as manager of the women’s team for having an ‘inappropriate and unacceptable’ relationship with one of his players while in charge of Bristol Academy.
James’ tweet read: ‘Mark Sampson sacked as @England women’s manager?! Seems some wasted talent can’t deal with the fact they aren’t good enough! #enialuko’
Aluko sensationally accused Football Association chief executive Martin Glenn of ‘blackmail’ on Wednesday afternoon after revealing he asked her to sign a statement saying the FA was not institutionally racist in order to receive the second part of a pay-out from them.
