• Sterling says people have shied away from speaking out
• ‘If you walk off they win,’ says Manchester City forward
Raheem Sterling has called on more players to speak out against racial abuse but said he would not be tempted to walk off the pitch in protest because that would allow the perpetrators to win.
The Manchester City forward has been lauded for his stance against racism in the game having first spoken out on social media last year about the way black players are portrayed in the media. Sterling also strongly condemned the abuse suffered by his England teammate Danny Rose in Montenegro during a European Championship qualifier last month and has called on Uefa to impose strong sanctions to ensure there is no repeat of those ugly scenes.
