England international winger, Raheem Sterling has been in discussions over a potential ambassadorial role to help combat racism in football.
The Manchester City forward has been an outspoken leader against the spiralling increase of racist incidents in England and across Europe, fronting a Premier League anti-racism campaign earlier this season.
“Even after I said what I said I have seen a lot more players, voicing their opinions and shedding light on the situation,” he said in conversation with United States footballer Megan Rapinoe on his YouTube channel.
“It’s one of those where we have to be all together, it should not be an individual thing to do. This is something we have to do as a collective to get our voices heard. Since then we have been pushing.
“I do have a few more meetings with the league about an ambassador role. It’s one of those where we’re gradually getting there but it’s not something that gets fixed overnight, but we’ll keep pushing and keep trying.”
Recall that 25-year old Sterling has been subjected to abuse at Chelsea and while playing for England over the past two years and was assaulted outside City’s training ground in 2017.
