(Reuters) - Queens Park Rangers’ Under-18 coach Paul Furlong was right to take his players off the pitch after they were allegedly subjected to racist taunts in a friendly in Seville last week, the Championship club’s CEO Lee Hoos said on Wednesday.

After one of the QPR players told Furlong about the incident, the coach instructed his players to leave the pitch and the match was abandoned.

QPR were playing AD Nervion in a pre-season game last Thursday when their players were allegedly on the receiving end of racist abuse.

British anti-discriminatory body Kick It Out said they would always back teams who leave the pitch due to discriminatory abuse.

“Kick It Out’s head of development Troy Townsend visited Queens Park Rangers just last month to help prepare players and staff for what may happen on tour,” it said in a statement.

“I applaud Paul Furlong and his staff for reacting in such a manner and doing everything within their powers to protect the players.

“We have been in constant communication with the club since this incident and will continue to support all football clubs and players in the fight against discrimination in the game.”
