Still on the Black Life Matters, the ManCity winger, Raheem Sterling has launched his own social media campaign as part of the Black Lives Matter movement, enlisting players including Kevin De Bruyne, Vincent Kompany and Lucy Bronze, calling for change in government and sporting organisations. Sterling has called upon the government to address the under-representation of black people in Parliament and on the boards of sporting organisations.
According to him, there are no owners, chief executives, or chairs who are black at any of the 92 Premier League and Football League clubs. Of those national sport governing bodies that receive public money, just three per cent of board members are black, and 64 per cent have no board members who are black at all.
