GUARDIOLA TO BACK PLAYERS
Written by thereachfm on December 24, 2019
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he would back his players if they ever found themselves compelled to walk off during a game in protest against racist abuse.
Guardiola said this while reacting to the scenes that marred Chelsea’s 1-0 win away to Tottenham Hotspur in the London derby on Sunday.
He said the problem of racism needs a lot of time before it can be eradicated.
It could be recalled that Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger reported he was subjected to racist abuse by home supporters which resulted in the Premier League’s anti-racist protocol being initiated for the first time.
