Cameron Jerome reignites Leeds race row by taunting fans on Twitter

Norwich City striker hit out on Twitter after helping the club win a Leeds United.

Norwich City striker Cameron Jerome has controversially reignited the row which saw Leeds United defender Giuseppe Bellusci charged by the FA earlier this season.

Bellusci had been accused of racist language during the draw at Carrow Road, was cleared of all charges due to insufficient evidence against him, reported the BBC in February.

Cameron as expected did not exactly receive a favourable reception at Elland Road yesterday evening, but appeared to take the criticism to heart, using Twitter after the game to taunt fans at helping Norwich record a 2-0 win, and insist he was right in reporting Bellusci.

Leeds United backed Bellusci throughout the case, and issued a statement after the centre-back was cleared via their official website two months ago which stated: "Leeds United is pleased to note the decision of the FA disciplinary panel to clear our defender, Giuseppe Bellusci, of all charges of racism made against him during the away game against Norwich City. Giuseppe has made it clear from the moment the incident happened that he did not use racist language."

The Italian did not play in the match, left on the bench by Neil Redfearn and so was denied the chance to lock horns with Jerome again.

There is no doubt he will be disappointed to have Jerome bring up the saga again.
