Ex-Liverpool Star Demands Stricter Sanctions For Racism
Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling has called for stricter sanctions for racism abuse as he continues to spearhead the fight to stamp the scourge out of football.
The former Liverpool player made this known in a chat with popular English media portal The Times.
Sterling demanded for a nine-point deduction for offenders.
He was speaking ahead of the Manchester Derby clash in the Premier League on Wednesday night.
Sterling has been in superb form for both club and country this season and he has been a key player for a Manchester City side chasing a fantastic treble.
Manchester City have already won the Carabao Cup title via a penalty shootout victory over London club Chelsea and they have also been knocked out of the Champions League by Tottenham Hotspur.
The Citizens can still win the Premier League and the FA Cup final.
Manchester City have an FA Cup final meeting with Watford next month while they can take a big step towards retaining their league title ahead of rivals Liverpool by beating Manchester United in their derby meeting later this week.
Sterling is expected to play a big part for Manchester City against the Red Devils.
He has scored 17 goals for Manchester City in the Premier League this season and he’s in contention for the Golden Boot Award ahead of the trip to take on Manchester United.
