Raheem Sterling accuses newspapers of fuelling racism

On Instagram, Sterling only briefly touched on Saturday's incident at Chelsea's Stamford Bridge stadium when a man appeared to aggressively hurl abuse at him as the ball was being retrieved on the byline.

A football fan reportedly from Beckenham has apologised for abusing England star Raheem Sterling - but denies his words were racist.

"Our investigations into this matter are ongoing". Chelsea have since announced that they have opened an investigation into the incident.

"If there is evidence of ticket holders taking part in any racist behaviour, the club will issue severe sanctions, including bans". He has also classily offered his support to Sterling.

Sterling issued a statement via his Instagram account on Sunday, in which he drew contrasts between media coverage of black and white footballers in the United Kingdom - a disparity he believes "helps fuel racism and aggressive behaviour".

Manchester City issued a statement welcoming the suspensions and said they were "fully engaged" with Chelsea and investigating authorities.

The 47-year-old, who played for the U's between 2001 and 2005, was reacting to recent allegations made by Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling.

No arrests have yet been made, but Chelsea are assisting the police with their investigation.

"Even if it wasn't racist, it's not right what I said".

When Tosin Adarabioyo, who is black, purchased a house for his mother in January it was described as a "mansion", with the Daily Mail adding that he had "never started a Premier League match".

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

"But I didn't call him a black c***, I called him a Manc c***".

Both Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling and former Liverpool winger John Barnes have a lot in common. Sterling, felt, according to Neville, that the abuse toward him was "vicious" and that he was being "targeted".

He says it was hard to watch someone he knows suffer the abuse Sterling was subjected to, and doubled down on his stance that a firmer hand needs to be taken against racism.

The alleged racist abuse came a week after Arsenal's Gabon global Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a banana skin thrown at him during the north London
derby with Tottenham.

'I've been going to Chelsea for 50 years now and, because of where I sit, I'm picked up on the camera most weeks.

A statement by the Metropolitan Police said it is "aware of a video circulating online in which it is claimed racial abuse was allegedly directed at a player", AP news agency reported.
