Football: Racists almost made me quit - Paulinho

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho has revealed that he almost retired from football after being subjected to racist abuse by fans in eastern Europe earlier in his career. The 25-year-old Brazil international recently joined Spurs from Corinthians in a £17 million ($26 million, 20 million euros) deal, but his last experience of European football was not a happy one. He first moved to Europe as a teenager, joining Lithuanian side Vilnius before moving on to Polish club LKS Lodz, and he said the abuse he received made him contemplate ending his career.
