Romelu Lukaku was the subject of 'racist' chants at Old Trafford on September 13, says Kick It OutManchester United are seeking advice on a "racist" Romelu Lukaku chant in response to a complaint from an anti-discrimination body.

Kick It Out has said it is aware of "alleged racist chanting by supporters of Manchester United that emerged on Wednesday evening (September 13)" in a song which included "offensive and discriminatory" lyrics about the size of Lukaku's penis.

"Manchester United are speaking to the relevant authorities about the song and will act accordingly depending on the advice they're given," a club statement read in response.

"United have a zero tolerance stance towards any forms of racism. Greater Manchester Police have had no complaints about the song at all."

United have confirmed they will liaise with Kick It Out on the matter.

"Racist stereotypes are never acceptable in football or wider society, irrespective of any intention to show support for a player," a Kick It Out statement read.

"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."
