Racist abuse made me play better


South African footballer Benni McCarthy on overcoming the racist abuse he received playing in Europe. McCarthy says he had to overcome racist abuse while playing in Holland and Spain, but that fans in England would insult his mother, but not the colour of his skin.He said, people in Europe are ignorance and blinded by racism.Well my friend, some people do not look at the talent you have, rather, they look at the colour of your skin and ethnicity.Some of us went through the same road.
