Bournemouth’s Tyrone Mings vs TalkSport

Bournemouth’s Tyrone Mings has taken to social media to reveal how he’s pulled out of an interview with TalkSport.

Mings explained that his decision was based on how they covered the Raheem Sterling racism issue.

The centre of the issue are comments made by former Reading striker Dave Kitson.

Kitson argued that Sterling has incited “jealousy” by the way his lives his life out on social media.

Kitson also said there are “no excuse whatsoever” for any abuse.

In reaction to those comments, Mings posted the following message on Twitter:

Thank you!

I’m meant to be doing an interview withTalkSport tomorrow which won’t be happening.

I’m fed up of broadcasting channels who have a huge voice allowing this sort of sh*t to be said.

Like someone or dislike them, there is no ‘but’ or grey area when it comes to racism.

Adrian Durham on Raheem Sterling

During his Drive show on TalksSport on Monday night, Adrian Durham gave his thoughts on the Raheem Sterling situation.

Adrian Durham’s comments were thoughtful and precise. His statement included the following:

White men are trying to claim that the fan said “manc” instead of “black”.  They’re trying to twist the truth for a reason – the first step for any racist is to deny that racism exists.

The hate for Sterling is clear, the undercurrent is racist and [Marcus] Rashford won’t get it because his career, so far, fits into the perceived pattern the racist white man thinks he can demand.
