    Raheem Sterling: Chelsea and police investigate allegation he was racially abused

    Chelsea and the Metropolitan Police are investigating allegations Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling was racially abused by a member of the crowd during Saturday's Premier League match at Stamford Bridge.

    Social media users posted a video of an incident during the first half of Chelsea's 2-0 victory during which the 24-year-old England international was shouted at as he collected the ball from behind the goal.

    Chelsea promised to "take the strongest possible action where necessary".

    The Met said no arrests had been made, adding: "We are aware of a video circulating online in which it is claimed racial abuse was allegedly directed at a player.

    "We will review the footage to determine whether any offences have been committed."

    He also screengrabbed a Daily Mail story about Tosin Adarabioyo, with a headline saying: “Young Manchester City footballer, 20, on 25,000 a week splashes out on mansion on market for 2.25million despite having never started a Premier League match”. in his post Sterling appeared to reference another story in the newspaper from October about the Manchester City player Phil Foden buying a house, which had a headline saying “Foden buys new 2m home for his mum”.
    Makes a good point.

    That seems awfully worded by the media.

    Newspapers are helping to "fuel racism" by the ways in which they portray young black footballers, says Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling.

    It comes after Sterling, 24, faced alleged racist abuse from Chelsea fans during City's 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

    Chelsea and the Metropolitan Police are investigating the allegations.

    "All I have to say is have a second thought about fair publicity and give all players an equal chance," he said.

    In a post on Instagram, Sterling said he "had to laugh" when he heard the alleged racist remarks during the game because he expects "no better".

    In the post, England international Sterling cites newspaper headlines about team-mates Tosin Adarabioyo and Phil Foden buying houses.

    The headline referring to 21-year-old defender Adarabioyo - who is on loan at West Brom - focuses on how he spent 2.25m on a property "despite having never started a Premier League match".

    By contrast, midfielder Foden, 18, "buys a 2m home for his mum" and is later described as having "set up a future".

    "You have two young players starting out their careers - both play for the same team, both have done the right thing, which is buy a new house for their mothers who have put in a lot of time and love into helping them get where they are," Sterling said.

    "But look at how the newspapers get their message across for the young black player and then for the young white player.

    "I think this is unacceptable, both innocent, have not done a thing wrong but just by the way it has been worded, this young black kid is looked at in a bad light, which helps fuel racism and aggressive behaviour."

    In a post on Instagram, Sterling said he "had to laugh" when he heard the alleged racist remarks during the game because he expects "no better".

    The Football Association said on Sunday it would support the investigations.

    Sterling's comments came the day after police in Scotland arrested two fans for allegedly directing racial abuse at Motherwell substitute Christian Mbulu during his side's defeat at Hearts.

    Raheem Sterling negative press coverage 'emboldens racist rhetoric' - PFA

    Negative press coverage of Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling "emboldens racist rhetoric", says the Professional Footballers' Association.

    Sterling, 24, posted on Instagram on Sunday saying newspapers are helping to "fuel racism" by the ways in which they portray young black footballers.

    Sterling was allegedly racially abused during City's 2-0 defeat at Chelsea.

    "It is evident that he is often singled out and treated more harshly than his colleagues," said a union statement.

    "As such, these stories are fuelling racism within the game, as reports of racist abuse continue to rise.

    "We have been aware for a few months of the targeting Raheem faces in the press."

    Chelsea and the Metropolitan Police are investigating the claims from Saturday's Premier League match at Stamford Bridge.

    England international Sterling said he "had to laugh" when he heard the alleged racist remarks because he expects "no better".

    "All I have to say is have a second thought about fair publicity and give all players an equal chance," he added.

    According to figures from anti-discrimination charity Kick It Out, reports of discriminatory abuse in football increased 11% last season - a sixth successive annual rise.

    Last week, a man was charged after a banana skin was thrown on to the pitch during Arsenal's 4-2 win over Tottenham at Emirates Stadium.

    Meanwhile, police in Scotland arrested two fans for allegedly directing racial abuse at Motherwell substitute Christian Mbulu during his side's defeat at Hearts on Saturday.

    The Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) said it condemns the increase in racial abuse its members have been receiving and encourages all clubs to "take the strongest possible action for fans found guilty of racially abusing players".

    Its statement added: "While it may be true that no racial slurs have been used in the press coverage received by Raheem and others, we are in no doubt that the negative narrative influences public opinion and emboldens racist rhetoric."

    Simone Pound, PFA head of equality and diversity, said: "Raheem has made a stand by speaking out and we stand shoulder to shoulder with him against the discrimination of which he speaks. We all have a part to play in tackling racism and discrimination and certain sectors of the media must be held to account.

    "The PFA are resolute in their work, challenging and tackling equality issues on behalf of the players."

    Raheem Sterling: Chelsea fans banned for alleged abuse of Manchester City forward

    Chelsea have suspended four people from attending matches while an investigation into the alleged racial abuse of Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling takes place.

    The incident involving the 24-year-old occurred during City's 2-0 loss at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

    Chelsea are "fully supporting" an ongoing police investigation.

    A club statement said evidence of racist behaviour will result in "severe sanctions, including bans".

    "Chelsea Football Club finds all forms of discriminatory behaviour abhorrent," the statement continued, adding that the club "will also fully support any criminal prosecutions".

    Press coverage 'emboldens racist rhetoric'
    Manchester City welcomed Chelsea's decision to issue suspensions.

    A club statement said: "The club and Raheem are fully engaged with Chelsea FC and the investigating authorities as they continue to examine the events in question.

    "Manchester City and Raheem are committed to working with all relevant parties and organisations to support the objective of eradicating racism from the game."

    Social media users posted a video of an incident during which Sterling was shouted at as he collected the ball from behind the goal.

    Sterling said he "had to laugh" when he heard the remarks because he expects "no better".

    A subsequent Instagram post from the England international saw him question the way the media portrays black players and has prompted debate between stakeholders in the game.

    The Professional Footballers' Association has said negative press coverage of Sterling "emboldens racist rhetoric", adding the former Liverpool player is "often singled out".

    Raheem Sterling: Tyrone Mings pulls out of Talksport appearance over coverage

    Bournemouth's Tyrone Mings has pulled out of an interview with Talksport in protest at its coverage of the alleged racial abuse of Raheem Sterling.

    Former Reading striker Dave Kitson told the station that Sterling had incited "jealousy" by exhibiting a luxury lifestyle on his social media.

    Kitson added that there was "no excuse whatsoever" for any abuse.

    "Like someone or dislike them, there is no 'but' or grey area when it comes to racism," said Mings on Twitter.

    "I'm fed up of broadcasting channels who have a huge voice allowing this.

    "Silence is deadly for stations and outlets who rely on viewers and listeners."

    BBC Sport has contacted Talksport for a response while Mings declined a BBC Sport request for an interview.

    Ex-Fulham and West Ham striker Leroy Rosenior, who has written about the racist abuse he received in his playing career, called Talksport to challenge Kitson's comments on air.

    England international Sterling, 24, was allegedly racially abused during Manchester City's 2-0 defeat against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Chelsea and the Metropolitan Police are investigating the allegations.

    Four people have been suspended from attending matches at Stamford Bridge while the investigations continue.

    Sterling said he "had to laugh" when he heard the alleged racist remarks during the game because he does not "expect any better".

    In an Instagram post, Sterling said newspapers are helping to "fuel racism" by the way in which they portray young footballers of different backgrounds.

    Defender Mings told The I in January that he regularly encountered racist abuse online, adding "people think they can get away with things on social media that they wouldn't get away with on the street".

    The Professional Footballers' Association has said that some press coverage of Sterling "emboldens racist rhetoric".

    Sterling was the victim of a racist attack in December 2017 outside Manchester City's training ground, for which the man responsible was sentenced to 16 weeks in prison after pleading guilty.

    Raheem Sterling writes letter to young fan after he suffered racial abuse

    Manchester City and England forward Raheem Sterling has told a young City fan to "be proud of who you are" after he was racially abused.

    Sterling, 24, wrote a letter to the supporter after the boy's grandmother revealed he had been having a "tough time" because of the abuse.

    Sterling has been the victim of abuse himself, the most recent alleged incident coming in a game at Chelsea.

    "Stand tall, don't let them take away your courage," Sterling wrote.

    "You are strong and very brave and your nanna is also very proud of you. Keep being you kid."

    In reaction to the abuse he was subjected to at Stamford Bridge, Sterling said newspapers "fuel racism" by their coverage of young black footballers.

    "All I have to say is have a second thought about fair publicity and give all players an equal chance," he said in December.

    In a post on Instagram, Sterling said he "had to laugh" when he heard the alleged racist remarks during the game because he expects "no better".

    Sterling, who has scored nine goals in the Premier League so far this season, ended his note with more words of support for the Blues fan, along with a signed image of himself.

    He said: "Remember speaking up doesn't always make life easy, but easy never changed anything."

    England full-back Danny Rose says players were "over the moon" to see Raheem Sterling criticise the media's portrayal of black players and says the winger was "spot on" in his analysis.

    Manchester City's Sterling, 24, was allegedly racially abused by a fan while playing at Chelsea in December.

    The forward later said newspapers helped "fuel racism" by the way they portray young black footballers.

    "Raheem was only saying what we all say in the dressing room," said Rose, 28.

    "It's sad really but he's 100% spot on with what he said," Tottenham defender Rose told BBC Sport before England begin their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign against the Czech Republic on Friday and Montenegro on Monday.

    "The stick he used to get from the media was bang out of order. When he put the [Instagram] post up about the media we were all over the moon with that because we all agree. Fair play to Raheem."

    Sterling's much-publicised social media post pointed to headlines about team-mates Tosin Adarabioyo and Phil Foden buying houses.

    The headline referring to Adarabioyo focused on how he spent 2.25m on a property "despite having never started a Premier League match", while one on Foden said the midfielder had bought "a 2m home for his mum", later adding he had "set up a future".

    Sterling has also drawn media scrutiny for a tattoo of a rifle on his leg, which he says refers to his late father, who was killed in Kingston, Jamaica.

    "One of the few positive things about social media now is you have a voice and you can influence people," Rose added.

    "Now it's not just boys in the dressing room talking about the media targeting Raheem, the general public have now seen it. We hope it changes but it doesn't affect Raheem in any way, which we are all grateful for."

    Racial abuse 'will not be solved overnight'

    Rose (far right) and Sterling are in the England squad for this month's Euro 2020 qualifiers
    Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the first time for the opening two Euro 2020 qualifiers. The 18-year-old faced alleged racist abuse while playing for Chelsea at Dynamo Kiev in the Europa League on Thursday.

    Rose has previously said he had become "numb" to racial abuse and had "no faith" in football's authorities to challenge it.

    "I was only reading this morning about what Callum had gone through," Rose added. "It will not be solved overnight.

    "There will be one or two further cases in the future before we get to a solution. I wouldn't like to say I don't have faith in the authorities to deal with it as that would be worrying but it is sad. I hope Callum has not been affected by it and if ever he needs to talk, I'm here."

    Rose thankful for mental health support

    Rose revealed he was wdiagnosed with depression during last season, citing injury and the suicide of his uncle as key triggers.

    He now says the timing of making the issue public shortly before the World Cup proved "uncomfortable" but praised the way Southgate supported him.

    "It was one of the best thing I've done," Rose added.

    "Looking back I would have maybe said something after the World Cup. For a short space of time the focus was on me and I was a bit uncomfortable with that.

    "The messages and support I received was amazing. I probably wish I had done it sooner than I did, but I did it and I'm happy.

    "Gareth was brilliant. He always is whenever I speak to him. We went for a walk on the morning it came out and he just gave me some advice. All through the World Cup he was checking on me. When I'm not with the squad I am in contact with him."

    Very true, but in terms of sports, Football has got to be the most racist given the chants etc - and the fact it is a working man's sport.

    Rarely do we see such racism in Cricket.

    Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp have led a number of Premier League managers in saying they would be prepared to take their players off the pitch in a bid to combat racist abuse.

    Manchester City boss Guardiola believes racism is "getting worse" in Europe.

    "Football is a strong weapon to defend the principles of humanity," he added.

    Liverpool's Klopp says football "has to do everything" to prevent racism, while Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri suggests a 10-minute break in the first instance.

    Cardiff manager Neil Warnock said punishment has to be more severe than it is now, suggesting teams whose fans were responsible for racist chanting could be kicked out of a tournament.

    Former Barcelona manager Guardiola added: "I remember a long time ago, people said you cannot mix football and politics. That is not true. Human rights is anywhere."

    The issue of how football should tackle racism was one of the main talking points as Premier League managers faced the media before this weekend's matches.

    It comes after England players - including City's Raheem Sterling and Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi - were targeted by racist chanting during Monday's Euro 2020 qualifier in Montenegro.

    After Sterling scored England's fifth goal in the 5-1 win, he celebrated by putting his hands to his ears and later said the gesture was a response to the racist abuse.

    England manager Gareth Southgate said he heard abuse directed at his players and the incidents were reported to Uefa, which has charged Montenegro with racist behaviour.

    "The situation only changes when you do something. When you do nothing it just stays the same," Guardiola, 48, said.

    "That is why when people like Raheem expressed what he did it is better for our society."

    Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti said his team asked three times for their match at Inter Milan in January to be suspended because of alleged racist chanting.

    In January 2013, AC Milan player Kevin-Prince Boateng sparked a walk-off because of racist chants in a friendly between his team and Italian lower division club Pro Patria.

    Italian Sarri, who spoke out against Chelsea fans accused of racially abusing Sterling in December, says a rule which allows a match to be stopped needs to be introduced across the sport.

    "In every country there are some stupid people, I think. So it's a big problem. I think that we need to do something different," Sarri, 60, said.

    "Probably it's right to stop the match for 10 minutes at the first situation."

    Klopp says he would have no qualms in taking his players off the pitch depending on the severity of the situation.

    "Whatever I could do, I would do. We have to stop games, we have to do everything," the 51-year-old German said.

    "If it's the whole stand, then I would do it 100%. But that's too much power for one or two idiots or three or four idiots.

    "If I take the players off and somebody says, 'It was not that serious', you lose the game - our job is to win football games.

    "But if the whole stand would do it then it is completely different."

    Englishman Warnock said he would not hesitate to take action himself if the match officials had been told about racist abuse towards players but not acted on it.

    "I would take a team off if that's what happened, the referee was informed and didn't do anything about it," the 70-year-old said.

    "It's got to be more severe than a fine or a slap on the wrist. The deterrent has got to be far worse than it is."

    Championship racist abuse claims involving Duane Holmes and Nathan Byrne investigated

    Two incidents of alleged racist abuse are being investigated following Championship matches on Saturday.

    Brentford confirmed a season-ticket holder was arrested after Derby manager Frank Lampard said midfielder Duane Holmes was abused in the dugout during their 3-3 draw.

    Wigan said they are "angered" by an abusive message sent to defender Nathan Byrne on Twitter after a 2-2 draw with Bristol City.

    The club have reported it to police.

    The EFL said it was "saddened, disappointed and angered to hear of further reports of alleged racism".

    The statement added: "It was exceptionally disappointing that this happened as clubs up and down the country were raising awareness of such issues as part of Kick it Out's Week of Action.

    "We remain fully committed to continuing to work alongside the Football Association and Premier League as well as other relevant parties to ensure that football provides a welcoming environment for supporters attending matches and those participating in them.

    "We cannot, and will not, accept this type of behaviour inside our stadiums, as we know our clubs won't."

    On Saturday Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha retweeted a message that called him a 'diving monkey'.

    In another incident, Northampton Town said their players suffered "appalling" abuse after midfielder Timi Elsnik, who is on loan from Derby, said his team-mates were racially abused outside a hotel in Nottingham before Saturday's League Two match against Notts County.

    "We would like to highly commend our players for the professional manner in which they handled the situation and as a club we stand together in condemning such actions," said a Northampton Town statement.

    "We are working with the relevant authorities and have asked anyone with any information about the incident, or possible witnesses, to contact the club."

    Lampard said Holmes was abused by a supporter after being substituted in the 74th minute of the match at Griffin Park.

    "Duane Holmes complained that he was racially abused - I didn't see it, I was facing play and a fan came up to him at the side of the dugout and abused him," he told Sky Sports.

    "Because it's such an important issue I don't want to go beyond what I know, but it was very clearly reported by the players and the people around."

    Brentford said the supporter was "identified at the time, removed from the ground and subsequently arrested" and that the club will "continue to liaise" with the Metropolitan Police.

    In a statement, they added the club "utterly condemns discrimination of any kind. It is abhorrent and has no place in society and we are determined to drive it out of Griffin Park.

    "The most severe sanctions will be imposed on any individual convicted of discrimination and we will await the result of the police investigation before commenting further."

    Derby said Holmes will "receive the club's full support after being subjected to such abhorrent behaviour".

    The Rams added: "Derby County would like to place on record its thanks to the staff at Brentford and the Metropolitan Police for their speedy assistance in relation to the incident."

    Byrne posted an image of an abusive direct message he received on Twitter after being involved in Wigan's late equaliser at Ashton Gate.

    Wigan said they have "reported the abuse as hate crime and will work with the relevant authorities to ensure the actions of the person responsible are dealt with appropriately".

    "There is no place for discrimination in society and social media is not an exception to those rules. We find this behaviour abhorrent."

    Anti-discrimination charity Kick It Out condemned the latest incidents.

    It said: "Another week, another group of players racially abused. We won't stop highlighting this disgraceful behaviour while it remains deeply ingrained within football. We'll be liaising with the relevant authorities and offering support to clubs and players involved."

    On Thursday, Tottenham defender Danny Rose said he "can't wait to see the back of football" and is frustrated at the lack of action taken against fans' racism.

    Racist chanting was directed at several England players, including Rose, during the Euro 2020 qualifier in Montenegro.

    Uefa has charged Montenegro with racist behaviour but Rose said he does not expect a significant punishment.

    Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling responded to the chants during that match by putting his hands to his ears after scoring, and later called on football's authorities to take "a proper stance" against racist abuse.

    On Tuesday, Juventus' 19-year-old Italian forward Moise Kean suffered racist abuse from the stands during a match at Cagliari before celebrating a late goal by holding his arms outstretched, seemingly in response to abusive chants.

    Juventus team-mate Leonardo Bonucci's suggestion that Kean was partly to blame was called laughable by Sterling.
