‘Head up Raz, we’re all behind you’ – Some Man City fans reacts as Raheem Sterling suffers racist abuse after Leeds defeat

Share

Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling was subjected to racist abuse on Twitter in the wake of the surprise defeat by Leeds in the Premier League on Saturday.

City dominated possession and chances against the Whites but did not test the goalkeeper enough and conceded from both shots they allowed to sink to a surprise 2-1 defeat that delays their crowning as Premier League champions.

It was not Sterling’s fault that City loss on Saturday, but the forward did nothing to suggest that he should keep his place in Guardiola’s side for the important game against Dortmund on Wednesday.

Sterling is one of the best forwards in the world but is going through a very tough spell. He has been in and out of the City first team, and one can see why. His skills and tricks haven’t quite come off of late and he has struggled to score goals too.

After the match, England international Sterling took to Twitter to express his disappointment with the loss, writing: “One to forget.”

At least two replies to the 26-year-old’s post contained racist messages, with those tweets soon deleted as other users condemned the abusive comments.

In reaction to his post, Man Man City fans flocked to have their say on the matter, with many sending Sterling messages of support.

Despite the shock reverse, Manchester City have a comfortable cushion at the top, 14 points clear of second-placed Manchester United, who have two games in hand.
