2 Min Read

Manchester City football club manager, Pep Guardiola has spoken out against racism following the police killing of Black American George Floyd last month.

According to Guardiola he wants change when it comes to racism all over the world. Guardiola revealed that he was “ashamed of what white people have done to black people”.

Guardiola said: “White people should say sorry for the way we have treated black people for 400 years.

“We should send a thousand million messages for the black people. I’m embarrassed and ashamed of what the white people have done for the black people.

“How people can think they are different? All the gestures are good and positive. Everything we can do to make it conscious, it is not acceptable.

“We have to do a lot of things for the black people which we have not done so far.”

Manchester City striker Raheem Sterling, who recently launched his own anti-racism social media campaign feels English football is finally “going in the right direction” when it comes to tackling racism.

He told Sky Sports : “I see it as a massive step for the Premier League to allow something like that to happen and it shows we’re going in the right direction.

“Little by little we’re seeing change. It was natural, it was organic. We saw the teams do it in the earlier kick-off and thought it was something we had to do as well.”
