Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri condemns ‘all forms’ of discrimination

Sarri speaks out

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has spoken out, and condemned all forms of discrimination.

It comes on the back of Raheem Sterling allegedly being racially abused during Chelsea’s win over Manchester City on the weekend.

The Blues won all three points, but the main talking point was the abuse aimed at Sterling.

Sarri has noted that while an investigation is ongoing, he can’t say much.

However, the Chelsea boss rightly condemned all forms of discrimination.

Sky Sports report he said: “First of all I want to say that I condemn any form of discrimination, of course. I think that I have to stop here.

“Because there is an investigation so I think it’s better not to say something more. Of course my opinion is that I condemn every sort of discrimination.”

Investigation ongoing

Sterling has not just spoken out against racial abuse, but also against some sections of the media.

The Manchester City player asked certain tabloid newspapers to consider what they print and how it can influence people.

Chelsea meanwhile are investigating and have suspended four fans.

Sarri and N’Golo Kante have condemned it, and Eden Hazard has also offered his support to Raheem Sterling.

Kick It Out, the PFA and the FA have also all rightly backed Sterling.
