Fan leaked Jermaine Jenas mobile number leading to horrendous racial abuse

A fan once leaked Jermaine Jenas' phone number after a North London derby, leading to the midfielder receiving a barrage of racist abuse.

Jenas spent the majority of his career at Tottenham, and he called White Hart Lane between 2005 and 2013.

And during that time, Jenas played his fair share of North London derbies against Arsene Wenger's side.

However, one fan, who worked at the phone company where Jenas' phone was registered leaked his number to Arsenal fans.

And Jeans explained the ordeal to The Sun, when speaking about his upcoming Channel 4 documentary focussing on fighting racism in football.

"Somebody at the phone company where my mobile was registered at the time would hand out my number," Jenas began to explain to The Sun.

"And it would spread among opposition fans.

"I’d finish the 90 minutes, look at my phone and have 20 voicemails saying, ‘Jenas, you black this’ or ‘Jenas, you N-word’ – every kind of racial slur you can think of.

"I had to keep changing my number, it was awful."
