Tottenham defender Danny Rose has been grateful for the support he received in the wake of comments he made last week about his future in the game.
Rose said that he has "had enough" and "can't wait" to quit football because of the way racism was handled in the sport.
Those remarkable quotes came following the abuse he received while playing for England in Montenegro, where Rose admitted he was expecting to be targeted.
The 28-year-old unsurprisingly hit the headlines and he has welcomed the response.
"Obviously it's been great," he said. "Despite what people think, I feel a bit uncomfortable with the headlines.
"But it is an unfortunate thing that's happening now in football. We saw it at the weekend in the Championship, and it looks like it's something that's creeping back in.
"I had some great support throughout the week, and I hope that once the season's finished people can sit down and discuss how to eradicate these unfortunate things that are happening now in football.
"It's a shame, really. But I've had some great support and would like to thank everyone who's shown me that support."
