Raheem Sterling wants to be the next time with the English football association FA and the organisation of the Premier League to think about the approach of racism. The Manchester City attacker has longer hard for the elimination of misconduct by fans.
“If I get the chance with the FA and the people of the Premier League to talk about how we can make things better in the future, I will not fail,” said Sterling in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday, during a meeting in New York.
“In my holiday, I stand there open for. During the season you need every day workout and will have you every two or three days and match, so then there is not really time to talk with people.”
The 24-year-old Sterling is regularly the victim of racism in football stadiums, such as at the end of march in the european CHAMPIONSHIP qualifier match of England in Montenegro. Also a team-mate Danny Rose and Callum Hudson-Odoi were then booed.
Last month called for the attacker of Manchester City and UEFA are still to harder to act on racism, which he support of other players, coaches and UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin.

‘Fines get nothing from’
Sterling calls for penalties where the relevant club sporty is affected. “For example, if I become a supporter of Manchester United, and am going to the stadium go, I want to not be the one that his team let you down by stupid things to call,” he said.
“If a club in the future shall be punished with a nine-point deduction, stop people there maybe. A fine for a fan, or a club gets nothing.”
According to the 49-fold international is racism, that also in Italy, for example, plays a major role, a complicated problem. “In England it is part of the culture that you on Saturday early in the morning, toeleeft to the contest and a lot of beer drinking,” says Sterling.
“A lot of people who are guilty of racism are already pretty far gone when the match once it starts, though, the situation is much better already than it was.”
Sterling has an excellent season behind them with Manchester City. The club finished with four prizes: the title, the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Community Shield.
