    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."

    Depends on the audience it's aimed at. Similarly awfully worded media articles have seen a President elected in the world's most powerful nation, and you could argue he's got a reputation for awfully worded statements himself.

    Raheem Sterling: Manchester City forward says newspapers 'fuel racism' in football

    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."
