Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer is disappointed at racist comments recently aimed at Alphonso Davies and girlfriend Jordyn Huitema.

Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer is against the ridiculous racial abuse aimed at Alphonso Davies on a social media picture of him and his girlfriend Jordyn Huitema.

The 20-year-old defender was recently subjected to racist remarks by online trolls in the comments section of a picture uploaded to Instagram by Huitema.

Davies’ girlfriend, Huitema, is a footballer herself and stars for the PSG female team as well as the Canada national side.

The Canadian who won the Champions League and Bundesliga with Bayern last year, has been dating his girlfriend for well over three years now and they took to holidays in Ibiza back in August.

As seen above, Huitema shared a picture of herself and Davies on Instagram at the time and some trolls have gone back to that post to flare up racist remarks.

As seen in the pictures below, some comments referred to her ‘f***ing an animal’ and called Davies, who was born in Ghana to Liberian parents, a ‘monkey’.

One user posted: “You will end up as a single mother of a disgusting combination-skin baby.”

Another read: “Your ancestors hate you for throwing away 1,000 years of pure, white genes”.

The official football team of the Canada national side even had to send out a statement saying they are fully against racism.

Bayern president Hainer has now come out to slam those racist remarks on Davies and his girlfriend.

“Our club stands for cosmopolitanism. The racist hostility will not be tolerated by us in any way,” he told BILD.

“We founded the ‘Red Against Racism’ initiative some time ago, which we practice very actively throughout the club in all sports and areas.”

“Exclusion, discrimination, hatred and violence in every form have no place in our world.”

“No matter where you come from – football offers us all a home. Football has the power to connect people. As FC Bayern we always want to contribute to this.”

In further sad complications, Davies and Huitema have now been forced to disable the comments section on their latest Instagram posts.
