Manchester United fans have been asked to stop singing a song about Romelu Lukaku because it reinforces racial stereotypes.
Anti-discrimination group ‘Kick It Out’ says the chant, which includes two references to the size of the Belgian striker’s penis is “offensive and unacceptable.”
A spokesman for the organisation told The Independent: “The lyrics used in the chant are offensive and discriminatory. Racist stereotypes are never acceptable in football or wider society, irrespective of any intention to show support for a player.
“We have contacted Manchester United regarding the issue and will be working closely with them and the FA to ensure that it is addressed swiftly. If we receive any reports relating to the discriminatory chant, those will be passed on to the governing body and the perpetrators can expect to face punishment."
Footage of the chant first emerged on social media last week.
The chant which is sung to the tune of the Stone Roses hit Made of Stone includes the lines: “Our Belgian scoring genius, with his 24 inch penis, scoring all the goals, bell-end to his toes.
A United spokesman didn't directly address the controversial chant but insisted the club has a "zero-tolerance attitude" to racism.
