NORWICH, England (AP) - Norwich manager Neil Adams says striker Cameron Jerome accused a Leeds rival of racially abusing him during an English second-tier match.

Referee Mark Clattenburg halted the game in the first half at Carrow Road after receiving a complaint from Jerome, who is black, following a verbal clash with Leeds defender Giuseppe Bellusci.

The official addressed both managers on the sidelines before giving Bellusci a warning, although he booked Jerome moments later for clattering into the Leeds player.

Adams said after the 1-1 draw that “Cameron Jerome has alleged he was the subject of a racist remark.”

Leeds manager Darko Milanic says the allegation “is all very new to me.”
