The 21-year-old is currently on tour in the Far East with the Premier League champions set to face Arsenal in their latest pre-season friendly on Saturday.

But he faced a backlash after posting two videos to his Instagram account that many supporters believed included racist undertones.

The first video was captioned "F***ing China" before a second clip of a sleeping security guard was posted with the caption: "Wake up China. You idiot."

The former Watford full-back has since responded to criticism and tried to explain his actions, saying: "Hello my friends, just wanna [sic] say sorry if someone was sad because I used the expression “porra” was no racism, just a expression…big hug."
