A non league manager has been sacked for posting a vile racist video onto social media, with ‘family on the verge of disowning him’.
Jake Henderson, who supports Premier League club Sheffield United and managed Polo Pukz FC, decided to have a rant about the Home Secretary Priti Patel, filming himself in the act and then the footage blew up, being seen by thousands.
The 30-year-old EDL thug could be seen voicing abuse about her as she delivered a Covid update on TV with the woman being filmed in the background of the clip, which can be seen below.

He said: “As a white man I won’t be listening to people of colour because they’re no good in positions of power.”
“Now, as a white man, I won’t be listening to people of colour because they’re no good in positions of power and a black man’s place is under a white man and p***s should stick to raping children in Rotherham, not telling me what I can and can’t do on an evening.
“So yeah, f*** the p***s and the blacks.”
After the Snapchat video was shared and he was identified and the club that he managed announced he had been sacked.
“Polo Pukz FC can announce Jake Henderson has been relieved of his managerial duties,” the club, based in Bassetlaw of Nottinghamshire tweeted.
“We would like to assure everyone that his views in NO way represent our club and would like to thank everyone who brought this to our attention.”
The footage went on to get a backlash of complaints and mass outrage with people calling for a full police investigation.
South Yorkshire Police tweeted to confirm the force had been made aware of the video circulating online.
BBC actor Jolyon Rubinstein is one of thousands of people to have seen the horrific video.
He tweeted: “Jake Henderson yeah? You disgusting racist piece of s***. Do you think you can go off talking all of that disgusting vile s*** and what? That nothing will happen? Good luck with that.”
A now-deleted LinkedIn page of Henderson’s said he worked at Stoneacre Motor Group.
In a statement the company said: “It has been brought to our attention that an individual has posted comments that Stoneacre considers to be an act of hate crime and of serious distaste.
“We would like to reassure the public and our loyal customers that this individual is not currently employed by Stoneacre and hasn’t been for some time.
“The Board of Directors are happy to support the authorities should they seek our assistance. We want to offer our deepest apologies to all concerned.”
Henderson later posted on his Instagram: “I’ve now lost my job.
“Thanks to you guys. Thank you so much. I made a mistake and now I’m jobless. Please stop the hate. I’m sorry.”
However, a further post said: “I stand by what I said. But I’m sorry. What do I have to do. My family are on the verge of disowning me. People now know where I live.”
He then pleaded for people to “have mercy”.

@BelieveMissT: Well done 4 dealing with this swiftly. How long has he been manager ? As you must have been aware of his views + still put him in a position of authority. A bloke as gobby as that would not have been quiet about being vile. Which means you were either complicit or not bothered
@Yewande92: Charges need to be pressed. The language that he used was violent
@jamieGroovement: Now @SheffieldUnited call him out please with a lifetime ban… he’s representing you allll down his timeline.
@dlg23uk: I saw this video this morning and it truly made me feel sick. Very glad it’s being called out
@jbwb2020: @FIFAcom These kinds of views are repugnant and unacceptable at all levels of sport. This ‘man’ was a manager of @PoloPukzFC for years, undoubtedly spouting hate for all to learn from. The damage he has caused to the young around him is huge. An investigation must be done.
@brianjproach: Noticed all your team are white. If one of the board had that view then this issue is rife through the club. surprised all those players are not 6 foot tall blonde hair and blue eyes.
@massiskitchen: Sounds like your club could do with some decent EDI training and bit of diversity…
@jazminrio: I wonder how many players have been subjected to his hate,been the butt of his racist jokes & most likely held back b/c of him! He recorded himself on his own social and posted it he clearly felt confident enough & I’m sure he has work friends on his socials did U really not know
@unionlib: The worst part of what Jake Henderson said is that it makes me feel solidarity with Priti Patel. This is unforgivable
@merseyjay: So #jakehenderson a filthy racist bigot has released a video giving us his opinion on Priti Patel. So within hours of his video he’s lost his job and gone into hiding as his address has been leaked. Good riddance to bad rubbish , I don’t normally get involved but this guys scum
