Lauren James: Emma Hayes describes abuse aimed at Chelsea and England player as disgusting

Emma Hayes has described the online abuse aimed at Chelsea forward Lauren James this week as “disgusting” – adding the England player “is not in a great place”.

James came under criticism after making an off-the-ball challenge on Arsenal’s Lia Walti in Chelsea’s 4-1 loss to the Gunners on Sunday.

The forward made the challenge when Chelsea were trailing 3-1 in the game – and Hayes substituted James immediately after the incident. Over the summer, James was sent off for England at the Women’s World Cup for a stamp on Nigeria’s Michelle Alozie.

  1. we live in age of social media…… there will always be a group of idiots that you'll notice on internet…… but, she needs to stay a professional and keep her mind focused on her club and family….. look at Harry MaGuire…… that guy is getting trolled even at african governments :D:D:D

  2. “In a world where you can be anything, be kind” – Caroline Flack. Lauren is a young player, yes she can be aggressive at times and I’m glad she’s taking steps to rid it from her game. She’s also one of the most exciting players to watch in world football. More importantly she’s a human being. It’s time to put a stop to this. Clubs, the media, social media companies and the respective leagues have a responsibility to protect players from these god awful viscous keyboard warriors. Block all replies and ban people commenting, don’t give these trolls a voice.

  3. "Someone called me a horrible word on the internet"

    It's the internet, why is this even a news story? I've had racist comments and death threats direct at me before, I didn't cry over it.
