Blades report Mackie
Carl Asaba in action for Sheffield United
Sheffield United say Asaba was racially abused
Sheffield United have reported Reading defender Jon Mackie to the Football Association (FA) and the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) for racially abusing striker Carl Asaba.

The incident followed the Blades 2-0 win at the Madeski Stadium on Saturday.

And Blades manager Neil Warnock told BBC Radio Sheffield that the abuse dealt out to Asaba was not acceptable.

"Mackie waited in the tunnel after the game and there was a bit of a fracas but nothing too bad," said Warnock.

"Then when the players went to warm down, there were some racial remarks directed at Carl which we are not accepting.

"Things like that shouldn't be said and we make no bones about writing to the FA and the PFA."
