Chelsea fan apologises to Raheem Sterling but denies racially abusing him

Raheem Sterling accuses the Daily Mail of fuelling

Sterling received a barrage of alleged racist abuse during Manchester City's loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, which both Chelsea and the police are now investigating.

Twitter users highlighted a first-half incident when a supporter appeared to abuse Sterling as he retrieved the ball near Chelsea supporters.

A statement issued by the London club reads as follows: "Chelsea Football Club has suspended four people from attending Chelsea matches pending further investigations into allegations regarding the behavior of supporters towards Raheem Sterling during our match against Manchester City".

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

A club statement said evidence of racist behaviour will result in "severe sanctions, including bans". "We will also fully support any criminal
prosecutions".

Writing about the incident on Sunday, Sterling said such behaviour was being fuelled by unfair coverage of young black players in newspapers.

"I've not said this before because at the time it was such a deep wound for Liverpool fans and Steven Gerrard personally", Neville said on Monday Night Football, as they discussed Alisson's arrival at Liverpool.

Sterling, who recently signed a contract extension with Manchester City, has previously faced negative publicity, often for non-football issues.

The forward said newspapers are fueling racism.

Mourinho reveals the reason Man Utd drew with Southampton
A third consecutive Premier League game without a win leaves United trailing in City's wake . I think everybody would say yes. "They kept overcomplicating the match".

One, about Tosin Adarabioyo, has a headline focusing on the fact he bought a multi-million pound house despite never having started in the Premier League.

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

It's a shame and disgraceful, if that is the case, if Raheem did suffer abuse at Stamford Bridge.

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.

"We're aware of reports and video footage".

Speaking after the victory at Bournemouth, Klopp said: "I think I said a few years ago that we have to write our own history, so that's part of our history", said Klopp of their points tally.

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.

"There was a time when I tried to hold stuff back but I know now that there is a 15-year-old boy just like Raheem, or a girl just like Raheem, that will go through these things and hopefully hearing these things from me and not keeping it to myself will help".
