The 24 year old Sterling, posted on Instagram that newspapers are helping to "fuel racism" by the ways in which they portray young black footballers. I don't think it should be in the game or anywhere.

"Forget about football, we have to stop compartmentalising it and thinking it is a problem in football and the rest of society is fine. Today the real power is the media, not politicians, not the governments, it's the media", he commented.

Chelsea suspended four people from attending their matches pending an investigation, with the club and the Metropolitan Police both looking into whether the England global was abused by supporters.

"At the moment we know what's going to happen - Liverpool are going to win games".

"It is something that players have talked about, especially me growing up as a black player and having black players around me in the youth team, and when we have played overseas it does happen some times".

Guardional on Tuesday admitted that "Racism is everywhere, it's not just in football". Incidents like we've just witnessed shouldn't be happening in this day and age. "Everyone is exposed to that - the managers, the players, everyone around the world", he said.

Trump's Chief of Staff John Kelly is leaving the White House
Kelly denied reportedly telling veteran Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward in September that the U.S. president is "an idiot". All the things that Donald Trump supposedly doesn't like about Kelly's style are the things most presidents take for granted.

He said: "As players, if we get support if we need support and understanding, and if you want to be a player who steps up and speaks about it, you just get respect after that. Believe me, that's ridiculous and that's why everyone has to protect from that situation". "We are on Raheem's side".

The pair worked together last season at Napoli and Sarri is now thought to be interested in bringing Mertens to Stamford Bridge.

Ince, a Paddy Power ambassador, said: "Players get criticised by fans". People can get caught up in the moment I suppose, and I am sure that guy will come out an apologise, and hopefully he won't do it again.

"But at the same token, it happens to white players too and some people forget that, so it's a tough one". It would be easy to retaliate to that type of remark. "He was outstanding on Saturday".

"We commend Raheem for his professionalism during the incident", the PFA - the trade union for players in England - said in a statement.

"We believe this all stems from a lack of diversity in the media, where there is a clear lack of understanding of people from diverse communities, and we call on the industry to address this with urgency". We are in the next stage and that's important but we want to go through finishing first.
